When Parken Kulturhus in Ålesund was to celebrate its 20th anniversary, it was obvious that the city favorite Hedvig Mollestad would write the commissioned work. The result is as unpredictable and powerful as a western coastal storm - intense turbulence replaced by short moments of quiet calm. Her record, the Spellemann - nominated Tempest Revisited, is her third release in less than two years. Her previous record Ekhidna gave her Spellemann, Edvardpris and a place on Downbeat's 25 for the Future list. Get ready to get blown away...
