Lene Langballe and Hans Knut Sveen play their ‘prologue’ to Requiem by W.A. Mozart. The piece is based on a set of diminusions (ornamentations) by Ric. Rognoni, developed from Palestrina’s motet Pulchra es anima mea. The cornetto part is accompanied by electronic sound and thus taking the melodic line into other contexts and assosiations.

Today, you can experience the collaboration in a new constellation, where Frode Thorsen, Siri Hilmen and Hans Knut Sveen will play together with (and against) Trond Lossius’ sound installation in the old jail building. We start at 12.00 with “experiments” (work-in-progress till aboutn 13.00) and at 14.00 there will be an “official” performance, lasting ca. 20 minutes.
Not easy to predict what might catch most of your interest, we recommend you to hang around most of the time. Between 12 and 13 we welcome you to take contact with the performers and get more insight in what we are doing or trying to do.

This is the sixth CD in the first complete recording of the 72 cantatas in Georg Philipp Telemann’s collection Harmonischer Gottes-Dienst, published in Hamburg in 1726 – the first complete set of cantatas for the liturgical year to appear in print. The cantatas are designated for voice, an obbligato instrument (recorder, violin, transverse flute or oboe) and basso continuo, and generally take the form of two da capo arias with an intervening recitative. Although intended for worship, both public and private, Telemann’s cantatas are a masterly blend of tunefulness with skilled counterpoint and vocal and instrumental virtuosity.
In our first collaboration with the record label LAWO web page we offer music from the environment of the Bach family in Leipzig, with music from the well known “Music book for Anna Magdalena Bach” as well as transcriptions of organ pieces and sonatas by Johann Sebastian himself.
Italian concerti and trios by Scarlatti, Mancini, Corelli and Geminiani.
The music has its base in the classic and ‘well balanced’ style of Arcangelo Corelli at the end of the 17th Cent. and which led up to the last phase of the era we call Baroque.
The programme is made from pieces for recorder, two violins and basso continuo. Bergen Barokk: Frode Thorsen, Stefan Lindvall, Paule Préfontaine, Siri Hilmen and Hans Knut Sveen.
Ludvig Holberg was a student in Oxford in the period 1706-08. During those years he served as a recorder teacher and learned so much himself, from teaching, that he, according to his own statement, became the town’s most popular flute teacher. He was also accepted as member of The Musical Club, – a weekly place for playing and listening. Not surprisingly, and still according to his own statements, he became one of the best performers there.
This programme presents music which was popular and published through those years Holberg spent in England:
Sonatas for flute and cello, by Arcangelo Corelli, James Paisible and William Topham.
Frode Thorsen, recorders and Siri Hilmen, cello.
