Susanna - "Go Dig My Grave" feat. Giovanna Pessi, Ida Hidle & Tuva Syvertsen
Susanna has never been afraid to solve the big questions in her music. In "Go Dig My Grave," she explores the encounter between historical musical genres by mixing traditional American folk and old English ballads with baroque instrumentation and her own, distinctive vocal interpretations. Add a little Henry Purcell, a little Lou Reed and Susanna's own music, and the result is an album that shows Susanna's unique character as a musician: "Go Dig My Grave" is a strong and personal collection of dark songs, with deep roots through centuries of American and European music heritage.
"Go Dig My Grave" is a continuation of Susanna's collaboration with Swiss baroque harpist Giovanna Pessi. Pessi played on Susanna's album "Sonata mix Dwarf Cosmos" (Rune Grammofon, 2007), and they collaborated on the critically acclaimed "If Grief Could Wait" (ECM, 2011) - a deep dive into sad music by Henry Purcell, Leonard Cohen and Susanna self. The result is a dynamic band effortlessly mastering the shift from the simple folk feel of Elizabeth Cotten's "Freight Train" to the cool beauty of Purcell's "Cold Song" and the complex emotions of the age-old lament "The Willow Song".
