Jeg har skrevet en blog tekst om innspillingsprosessen.

To første strofer:
“In October 2019, I was at Snape Maltings, near Aldeburgh and very much associated with Benjamin Britten, to record my first recital CD. Shortly to be released on Rubicon Classics, I was joined by my regular recital partner, German pianist David Meier – who I’ve known and worked with for ten years – and the Norwegian composer Peder Barratt-Due (as well as the recording team, of course). We spent three days recording six works in the Britten Studio in the very beautiful surroundings of the Maltings.”
This is the first time I recorded a full recital CD with piano, so without any experience like this, I was really wondering how it would work out. The first day we started of recording Hindemith’s Sonata. The recording team were easy to work with and David was having a good time playing the entire repertoire from memory! At the end of the day I noticed the sound of my viola’s C-string wasn’t as good as it should be. It was kind of ‘tired’ and had a “buzzing” sound and I feared that it would be the same on the recording. It was! Therefore, with the producer, we decided to re-record some of the parts of the Hindemith Sonata again the next day, but with a new C-string.”
