“- Her til lands er det neppe noen som behersker mangfoldet i kabaretformen bedre enn Tora Augestad. [5/6 Geir Vestad/Hamar Arbeiderblad]“
This album is all about cabaret music, not least about the well known songs by Stephen Sondheim and Kurt Weill. Ivar Anton Waagaard and Tora Augestad have played together for nearly 10 years. Starting off with a repertoire of classical music, they soon found a common love for cabaret songs. This recording is documentation for their admiration and fascination for this material. - Cabaret songs are in a state of constant change, and are therefore hard to capture. Balancing between popular and classical music, between stage and bar, the cabaret song has always tried to tell stories of its present time. Through irony and honesty, glamour and vigour, cabaret songs offer artistic fragments and moments. In these songs you will hopefully find the favour, feeling, mood and magic of the cabaret. It is our hope that listeners will enjoy this fascinating and diverse musical landscape, says Tora Augestad.
