Det Norske Kammerorkester


Terje Třnnesen conductor


THE NORWEGIAN CHAMBER ORCHESTRA AND COMPOSER EIVIND BUENE BUILD BRIDGES FROM OUR OWN TIME TO THE PAST

They will perform two works that were previously commissioned by the Norwegian Chamber Orchestra as well as the works by which they were inspired. Buene’s Stilleben for 15 solo strings serves as an atmospheric prelude when played together with Mozart’s Piano Concerto no. 17 (2nd movement). Using the first tones of Wagner’s Tristan and Isolde, Buene treats Wagner’s building blocks in a slow, translucent meditation. Garland is a comment on Baroque composer Matthew Locke’s string suites.

Combining the works like this shows how recognition and repetition are two different things. Buene assumes that we interpret everything we experience based on prior experience – and that is not a bad thing, not even in contemporary music. By also focusing on the perceptible sound experience, the works bridge the classical dichotomy between body and mind.

Eivind Buene (born 1973) is a Norwegian composer and writer whose music has been performed by the Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra, Ensemble Intercontemporain and Cikada, among others. The Norwegian Chamber Orchestra is one of Norway’s leading chamber orchestras, and places emphasis on a solid classical repertoire, new works, and creative outreach. The concert also marks the opening of the orchestra’s season opening.
