Brothers Lawrence Wilde and Charles Boguinia come together to present a program of piano music by Edward Grieg and new compositions for the Swedish nyckelharpa, violin and piano inspired by Swedish and Norwegian Folk music.

The Voices of Scandinavia program features piano works by Edvard Grieg and new compositions for nyckelharpa, violin and piano composed by Lawrence Wilde. The concert is the culmination of Lawrence’s artistic research of Scandinavian folk music and the Swedish nyckelharpa. Last year Lawrence spent a year studying and researching Scandinavian folk music and new music in Stockholm Sweden. His research resulted in the release of two albums:
Fossegrim for re-tuned violin (inspired by Norwegian folklore and different hardanger fiddle tunings)
Pendulum for nyckelharpa (exploring the Swedish nyckelharpa)

Lawrence fell so much in love with the nyckelharpa that he acquired one from Olle Plahn, a well-known maker of the instrument in Sweden and brought it back with him to the U.S.!
The Voices of Scandinavia concert will open with a pre-concert discussion about Scandinavian folk music and a demonstration of the Swedish nyckelharpa.

Lawrence is a composer, violinist and nyckelharpa player. He completed his undergraduate studies at the Juilliard School and is currently a PhD candidate at Princeton University. Charles is a pianist and composer, he studied piano at the New School in NYC with Vladimir Feltsman and is currently completing his PhD in Boston.
