Rune Alver’s new release “Fedrenes fjell” features the Norwegian composer David Monrad Johansen’s complete works for piano collected for the first time on one CD. Alver, who has played Johansen’s piano pieces since he was a child, has a close relationship with this music. He was a pupil of Jan Henrik Kayser, one of the most important Norwegian pianists of the twentieth century, who passed away recently. Kayser, who knew Johansen personally, received invaluable insights into the music in his studies with the composer.
