TALES & SENSES
On this evening the Icelandic harp and percussion duo Harpverk, flautist Hélène Navasse, violinist Ása Guðjonsdóttir and cellist Margrét Árnadóttir takes centre stage in the Concert Church's beautiful space with a programme that revolves around artistic inspiration and the reciprocity of the universal and the concrete, of the tales we tell and the sense we inhabit.
The pragmatic and the sensuous are combined with the primitive in a varied programme featuring the work of Nordic composers across generations. Experience music that is inspired by old tales and rites, such as Kaija Saariaho's concert for flute Terrestre fom 2002, which unfolds the idea of the bird as a tiny satellite in a universal cycle. And look forward to two world premieres by composers Ólafur Björn Ólafsson from Iceland and Andras Spang Olsen from the Pharaoh Islands.
The programme this evening will also offer two works written specifically for Duo Harpverk, Swedish Peter Bjuhr's Skins, Strings and Wood and Icelandic Anna Þórvaldsdóttir's Tactility, which both take as a starting point the materiality of the harp and percussion as instruments.
