Bent Sørensen: De fire årstider (The Four Seasons)

Friday, September 9th
Kulturkirken Jakob, 6:00 PM
A one-year cycle depicted in a unique audio-literary collaboration

Life, art, love, the world, the weather – all this is reflected in Norwegian novelist Tomas Espedal’s new book Året (The Year). At the same time, Danish composer Bent Sørensen has always had ambitions to compose a musical work around the seasonal cycle.
In a mixture of readings by actor Trond Høvik of Espedal's diary-style narrative, chattering, singing and humming, the two artists’ parallel visions of the year are transformed into a new music piece in collaboration with legendary Norwegian ensemble POING. The world’s and nature's transience and degeneration are a constant theme in the work of Bent Sørensen. Tomas Espedal has published twelve books in eighteen different territories since 1988.
