Sandra returned to the Glenn Gould Studio to record her first solo album in December 2006 for a 2007 release in conjunction with the Edvard Grieg centenary. SANDRA MOGENSEN: Piano Music of Edvard Grieg, produced by Earl McCluskie was warmly received and praised. A second disc of Grieg’s piano music (SANDRA MOGENSEN: Piano Music of Edvard Grieg Volume 2) followed in 2009, again produced by Earl McCluskie. With the most recent 2012 release of SANDRA MOGENSEN: Piano Music of Edvard Grieg Volume 3, Sandra has completed a trilogy of uniquely programmed discs honouring the great Norwegian composer.
Sandra’s fascination with Grieg began early in life and has its roots in Sandra’s northern European heritage. With a Danish father and Latvian mother, her affinity for the Scandinavian and Baltic cultures was kindled at a young age. Sandra’s love for Grieg’s music has taken her to Grieg conferences in Florida and Copenhagen. A memorable performance experience took place in 2010 when Sandra performed at the “Troldsalen” recital hall at Troldhaugen, Grieg’s villa in Bergen, Norway.
From 2001-2012, Sandra was based in beautiful and culturally rich Stratford, Ontario, Canada. After a self-funded 'sabbatical' year in Copenhagen, Denmark, Sandra is now based in Toronto, Canada. For updates, please go to the blog page.
