New piece at Avgarde concert
A new piece, Libera Me, Dies Irae for voice, percussion, harmonium and violin with be performed at the Avgarde concert on 8th November at Nøsteboden in Bergen.
This is the 3rd concert in a series which asks,
¨can art music composed today also be meant for “community singing”? Together we learn songs that are completely newly composed by contemporary composers. This time we have the theme “Requiem fragments”! Come and sing with us!¨
Great review of Sacred Space
Klassik Musikk – Annabel Guaita
The program opens with Marcus Davidson’s Sacred Space for organ and electronics, an exciting work that sets the tone for the concert and makes me open and curious. Davidson has listened to recordings made by scientists from space and been inspired by this. The electronics and the organ dress each other tonally. Organist Anders Eidsten Dahl is a steady musician throughout the concert and alternates between virtuoso and intense static organ playing. The music draws us into a musical chaos that turns into broad soundscapes. Later in the concert we hear the vocal ensemble Tabula Rasa in Davidson’s Musical harmony and the premiere O, great spirit. This is a beautiful work with delicate, free-tonal harmonies that are reminiscent of Fartein Valen’s expressive tonal language. The vocal ensemble appears as a cohesive organism with listening vocalists. One can only sit back and enjoy their sublime intonation
