Ørjan gets inspired! ... See MoreSee Less

Delighted to spend the day at my shed with composer Ørjan Matre! 
He will compose a percussion concerto for me to be premiered by both The Bergen Philharmonic and Kristiansand Symphony Orchestras in 2021.

Today was the first day of sharing happiness together. And for sure not the last:)!
