Notes and Editorial Reviews

When Ragin Esther Wenk-Wolff created the musical vignettes with the same music as represented on this CD, for NRK television in 1982, it was but one example of her artistic vision. By combining her arts in a way that is unique to her and her imaginative inspiration, she shares with her audience a wider spectrum of her mutli-faceted artistic gifts. Her major orchestral engagements have included the Royal Philarmonic Orchestra in London, Norway's Oslo and Bergen Philharmonic Orchestras, Denmark's Aarhus Symphony Orchestra, and Holland's Het Gelders Orchestra. Likewise Ragin has been a frequent guest soloist at prestigious music festivals such as Bergen, Elverum, and the Janacek Festival. - Centaur Records When Ragin Esther Wenk-Wolff created the musical vignettes with the same music as represented on this CD, for NRK television in 1982, it was but one example of her artistic vision.
