    One of the shortest submissions ever :D But quite hard work all the same.
    No. 48 from the Hardanger Tunes, a hilarious village scene about a silly boy knocking up a girl in the middle of hay season and henceforth being dragged to wedding, the mischievous narratings of his ways interspersed by sarcastic shouts of "he says". Only two more to go now. I hope Chase does not beat me to no.50 - the ultimate rural pub scene :wink:

    Wow, that’s got some interesting harmonies! Are they all chords or are some clusters? And it sounds like your RH gave you a bit of trouble in the middle section when it is way up high. Didn’t quite sound in sync, but maybe that’s intentional? Other than that, sounded good – a little strange – but good. Silly/naughty boys...

    All 'conventional' chords here. One piece coming up with clusters though... That will clip my Edirol big time :D

    That was an unfortunate flub indeed. I've remedied it with a bit from an earlier take (I had several usable ones). Too lazy to re-record :lol:

    Hi Chris,

    Usually with Tveitt I have to "stretch my ears" a bit, but this one I liked immediately. I don't have the score here, but believe you played it very well. Do you supposed that the "Hasty Wedding" might be what here in the U.S. we refer to as a "shotgun wedding"? :lol:

    Yes, he can sometimes be a bit meandering, but when he's in the right mood, he can pin you by the ears like nobody else. Some of the items from this set have that effect. I am just listening to his two concerti for the hardanger fiddle (Hardangerfele), and orchestra, the first of which is one of the best concerti I have ever come across. On a par with his irresistable 1st piano concerto and the two-piano variations, which every piano lover should check out.

    Thanks ! There's one or two iffy notes in the difficult chordal passages but otherwise this is quite accurate. Yes, shotgun wedding would sort of describe it :)

    I had to listen without score, because there is no available.

    So, I could completely concentrate to enjoy this interesting piece. There are some funny repetitions of chords and tones it! I think you bring out this hasty or let´s also say coy character very well!
    Bravo, I have enjoyed it!

    Well, this one sounds also very nice to me. I like this kind of humour respective blitheful "good-mood-atmosphere" in music. I think you do a great job concerning the expression here!

    That could be so, thanks. The accuracy is not so great though. I may want to redo this one as well.
