Advent Calendar 2017

Hi! Welcome to this year's Advent Calendar!

Once again, the Norwegian Institute of Recorded Sound invites to a musical Advent Calendar with samples from the rich collections located in Stavanger. Our Argentinian-Danish librarian has made up the selection which, this year, comes from our gramophone project "The Other Singers" - in other words: vocally sparkling Stars!!

Whilst you're waiting for the rest of Advent you can listen to Christmas music from our calendars in 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016.

A Vocal Star Shower!

The Norwegian Institute of Recorded Sound in Stavanger is currently presenting the exhibition "The Others". But... who are "the others"? From the early times of the gramophone, Norway has produced a large number of famous opera singers. Many of these became involved in famous opera houses like La Scala in Milan, L' Opera Comique and the Garnier Opera in Paris, the Opera Houses in Berlin and Bayreuth, the Metropolitan of New York and the Colonnade of Colón in the distant and cosmopolitan Buenos Aires. The impressive fame of new generation singers, such as Ivar Andresen and Kisten Flagstad, has slowly overshadowed these early into oblivion. This is why the sound institute has launched a project about The Other Singers. In our vaults we found 78-records, LPs and magnetic tapes with 70 of these forgotten singers. We have found photographs, bibliographies, articles in old newspapers (even some with juicy gossip!). This work has given us at times great surprises and definitely inspiration for our exhibitions. We would like to share a selection from the results from this extensive work in this year of 2017. You are hereby invited to enjoy these stars in the sweet time of Advent.

We hope you will enjoy the music selection. Merry Christmas !!!!!
