Event has already taken place. A dizzying journey from the Renaissance to present day, with the Norwegian Chamber Orchestra and mezzo-soprano Tora Augestad.
An evening with music on the theme of madness, from the Renaissance to present day. Based on and inspired by Henry Purcell’s Mad Songs, the visiting Norwegian Chamber Orchestra takes us on a dizzying journey where works by Kurt Weill and Luciano Berio meet contemporary compositions. Together with soloist Tora
Augestad, the orchestra shows how Baroque music can be performed like a cabaret show, and how pop music can be made to sound like something from a bygone era.
