A Baroque Portrait – Carlos Bonell – in memory of Arne Brattland (1955-2020) performed by Debra J. Adamson-Brattland
‘This track is on my CD called Lullaby. The CD is a tribute to Arne Brattland, my husband and best friend who sadly passed away December 2020. Arne left us with a legacy of compositions and arrangements which I turned to for comfort, playing his new Philip Woodfield guitar ‘Heidi’ (2020). Later came some works in memory of Arne and arrangements of other songs and pieces connected to him. They brought a sense of calm, a feeling of closeness to Arne and helped me to gradually process the loss. Let’s say it has been very much the case that ‘Music expresses that which cannot be put into words’ – Victor Hugo. The imagery for this recording is from Mo i Rana in Northern Norway where we lived happily together for many years and where our daughter Heidi was born’.
