I am, along with many other composers, represented on i concert in Bruxelles on 19th november, with more than 30 world premiers! How is it possibloe? Well, I participated in a competition where the composers should contribute with a piece for guitar and cello, with duration up to one minute! My "Rain song" was one of the chosen pieces, together with a lot of others!
September 28, 2018 at 22:00 these two outstanding ensembles unite in the world premiere of a new piece composed directly for them: "Meditations over St. Mary Magdalene's feast in Nidaros" borrows material from a 13th century antiphonal manuscript probably both written in and used in Nidaros, the medieval name of Trond-heim. The new piece is a fantasy around antiphons, hymns and psalms, where both ensemble function either as "medieval anchor" or contemporary commentator.
SSS has earlier worked with other parts of the menuscript «Add fol 47», in "Fingergullmess" and in their recordings of the St. Olaf office. Now it is Mary Magdalene's turn!
