Mahler Symphony no. 2  with NDR Philharmonic and Andrew Manze



"A singer with such a charisma challenged her colleagues." (Dreh-Punkt-Kultur) Mezzo-soprano Marianne Beate Kielland is famous for her strong stage presence and musical integrity. Gramophone Magazine writes about her: "The mezzo-soprano is quite outstanding: strong, firm, sensitive in modulations, imaginative in her treatment of words, with a voice pure in quality, wide in range and unfalteringly true in intonation."


She is educated from Norwegian Academy of Music, where she studied with Svein Bjørkøy. She has also studied with Oren Brown and Barbara Bonney.

She is one of Europe’s foremost concert singers, and she regularly appears in the concert halls of Europe, Japan and America with conductors such as: Masaaki Suzuki, Andrew Manze, Michel Corboz, Leonardo Alarcon, Herbert Blomstedt, Jordi Savall, Rinaldo Alessandrini and Thomas Dausgaard. 


In 2012 she was US Grammy nominee in "Best Vocal Classical Album» for "Veslemøy Synsk" by Olav Anton Thommessen, and with this and more than 50 other recordings and a wide range of repertoire and performances, she is established as a remarkable interpreter of music from baroque to contemporary era.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY Mahler songs with New Jersey Symphony

But the real power of these songs come from the vocal writing, and here Marianne Beate Kielland was truly golden in her interpretation. In possession of a rich, piercing Mezzo sound and excellent German diction Ms. Kielland made these old world songs feel fresh and immediate. She sang without the use of a score, as if the words and feelings were springing from her naturally. In her high notes, her voice throbbed with emotion. It was only 16-minutes long, but it made the whole concert worthwhile. "Songs of a Wayfarer" is one of the highlights of the NJSO season so far.

About Mahler Einsamkeit:


I have lots of marvellous Mahler recording on my bending shelves, recordings that I will not voluntarily be separated from. This latest disc will now join those with Janet Baker, Christa Ludwig, Brigitte Fassbaender, Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau, Thomas Hampson and several others. I urge readers to follow my example.

About Schumann Lieder:


As a matter of fact Marianne Beate Kielland is just as marvelous as I had hoped for. And question is whether she has ever sung as lovingly beautiful as here. Now in her mid-forties her tone has adopted a youthful silvery sheen that is wholly enticing.

«The incredible voice of Marianne Beate Kielland has left its mark on the 2019 Salzburger Festspiele | Salzburg Festival: "A particularly lucky choice had been made with Marianne Beate Kielland (Soprano II). She presented her Laudamus te in highly characteristic fashion, clearly articulated, also quick at hand with lyric elements. A singer with such charisma was almost a challenge for her colleagues. The three of them gave a well-balanced ensemble."

Nebra with Al Ayre Espanol

Marianne Beate Kielland was the surprise of the evening. Kielland showed us an absolutely equal record in both the highs and the low ones. Her easy capacity for the legato left us precious phrases without prejudice to a great capacity for drama and power in the most forte passages. In addition her cadences were a delight.
