The award winning Irish-Norwegian duo Secret Garden will perform at the Beijing Exhibition Theatre on the 29th and 30th of May.
The duo features the Irish violinist Fionnuala Sherry and the Norwegian composer/pianist Rolf Løvland. They have sold over 3 million albums and won the Eurovision Song Contest in 1995 with the composition “Nocturne”. It was the first and only time to date that a predominantly instrumental piece has won the Eurovision Song Contest, although a few Norwegian lyrics were included to ensure that the entry adhered to the contest’s rules.
Their first album Songs from a Secret Garden sold a million copies around the world going platinum in Norway and Korea, gold in Ireland, Hong Kong and New Zealand and spending two years in the Billboard New Age charts in 1996 and 1997. Barbra Streisand adapted “Heartstrings” from this album as the song “I’ve Dreamed of You” on her A Love Like Ours album. She also used “Heartstrings” in her wedding to James Brolin.
Their most famous song “You Raise Me Up”, performed by Brian Kennedy, has been recorded by more than a hundred other artists including Josh Groban, Russell Watson, Westlife, Sissel, Becky Taylor, Celtic Woman, Lena Park, Robert Tremlett and Il Divo.
