This week Hans-Kristian will record Lament – concerto for percussion, choir & electronics by Lars Petter Hagen, together with Asbjørn Blokkum Flø on electronics and The Norwegian Soloist´s Choir conducted by Grete Pedersen.
The recording is done by BIS, who also recorded HK´s first solo album OPEN, which won the Norwegian Grammy “Spellemannsprisen” in 2004.
Lament was commissioned by Hans-Kristian Kjos Sørensen, with the support of Arts Council Norway, and is a part of his Nordic Percussion Concertos. Lament was premiered in Oslo with the same lineup in January 2017.
Vacation is over and I am so happy to be back this week at Festspillene in Elverum.
Playing with the likes of Florian Donderer, Tanja Tetzlaff, Ole Edvard Antonsen, Wolfgang Plagge, Knut Erik Sundquist, Martin Kuuskmann is always a thrill!
Music by Bach, Stravinsky, Nørgård, Aperghis, Kagel, Kurtag, Corea and many, many more…
