THE CHAMBER MUSIC SERIES: In touch with life
Experience a concert in which words, movement and touch also have a natural place. During this performance, flautist Ellen Marianne Jenssen challenges the traditional form of a concert and what it may convey. By including poetry, dance and touching, she challenges and stimulates the audience’s perception of what a concert experience can be. New possibilities of expression for musical works and dissemination on many levels come into existence.
The programme features music that originates from Jenssen’s own work, via Vivaldi to Shostakovich.
