Cancelled: Beethoven 250 – Christ on the Mount of Olives

Thursday April 02, 2020

Christ on the Mount of Olives projects Beethoven’s own emotional turmoil onto that of Christ’s last hours on earth before crucifixion. It is a powerful, dramatic and intense work in which Beethoven is unflinching in the face of emotional and physical distress.

Mens vi er forhindret fra å holde konserter en stund fremover, vil vi gjerne dele noen sanger fra platen vår, Edvard Grieg Kor Sings Grieg, som ble utgitt på Chandos Records i fjor. Først ut er et av Griegs få originale verker for blandet kor, "Ave Maris Stella":

"Hill deg, havets stjerne,
send ditt lys, det milde
redningsbluss på livets
mørke vover ville."

(Fra latin ved Thor Næve Lange)

I dag skulle vi egentlig hatt generalprøve på Mozart sin opera #laclementzaditito @grieghallen med @bergenopera @bergenfilharmoniske og fantastiske solister! Sånn ble det ikke... Vi, som så mange andre, må nå være kreative og finne nye måter å jobbe på for å nå ut til dere! I dag har vi hatt vårt første zoommøte for å komme i gang med den nye hverdagen - så får vi se hva som skjer... ☺️ #nyhverdag #KOR #hjemmekontor #edvardgriegkor #Zoom #møte #planer #ensemble #kreativetanker

Today we were supposed have taken part in the dress rehearsal of Avlyst: Mozarts La clemenza di Tito at Grieghallen with the Bergen Philharmonic, Bergen National Opera and amazing soloists.. This, of course, was not possible... Instead we like so many others now need to be creative and think of other ways to reach our audiences. So today we had our first meeting on Zoom in order to discuss the way forward. Let´s see what this may bring☺️
