A new version of the harp concerto “…yet from those flames no light…” is performed on November 3rd in Bergen Domkirke. The piece was premiered in 2015 by Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra, Edward Gardner and harp soloist Johannes Wik. The orchestra and the soloist are the same for this performance, but the piece now also includes choir (Bergen Domkor) and organ (Sigurd Melvær Øgaard).
The stage setup will be quite spectacular, with the orchestra distributed throughout the church, completely surrounding the audience.
The recording of Konsert for orkester, performed by Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra and Peter Herresthal (violin), conducted by Peter Szilvay, picked up two Norwegian Grammys during the Norwegian Grammy Award (Spellemannsprisen), in the categories Best Contemporary Album, and TONOs Composer Price.
