Friday 14 October 9 pm
Domkirken, Bergen NB! NEW VENUE!
Students fom The Grieg Academy
Conductor – Baldur Brönnimann
Trumpet soloist - Martin Winter
Piano soloists - Mai Goto, Sevinj Askarova, Yuko Shuto (students from The Grieg Academy)
Assistant conductor – Trond Madsen
Students from the Grieg Academy perform together with professional musicians
in BIT20 Ensemble. BIT20's Artistic Director Baldur Brönnimann had two important
reasons to initiate the project: The audience in Bergen should be presented with
such a strong and important musical work from recent decades - and a specialized
contemporary music ensemble as BIT20 should create stronger ripple effects in
its own city, by sharing its competence and experience to a new generation of
musicians. The professional musicians and the students become equal colleagues
on the stage, but the students will draw useful experience from the musicians
during the practice sessions.
