Concert Sunday 6 December at 14:00 in Latinskolen, Bergen. With Frode Thorsen, Adrian Rovatkay, Siri Hilmen and Hans Knut Sveen.
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.

Listen to Lene Langballe and Hans Knut Sveen performing the motet with its diminutions, 5. nov. 2014 in St. Jakob kirke, Bergen.
5 mins clip from the performance at the old prison in Bergen, together with Trond Lossius and his sound installation at “Lokalt 2015”, 26 Sept 2015.
In Bergen old prison these days you can see the exhibition “Lokalt”, which presents a large numger of artists from the region. One of those, Trond Lossius, is a sound artist and long time collaborator with Bergen Barokk, in projects as “The Place Sound Builds in Passing” and “Brudd. Flate.”.
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.
From Toccata Classics’ website:
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.
See Toccata Classics for details.
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.
The CD is being released Friday 29 May.
