Menneskelivet

- Opening concert

Monday, August 23rd
20.00 – 21.45
Helligåndskirken Hvide Sande

The opening concert’s two works give us the opportunity to reflect on the time we have been through, which in many ways has been a hard and cold time throughout the world – but both Nørgård’s and the Messiah’s music opens up hope and brighter times. Not least ‘Kvartet til Tidens Ende’ which was premiered during World War II in a prisoner of war camp with fellow prisoners and their guards as listeners. A vision of the transformation of our world into another.

Tågen Letter

Tuesday, August 24th
21.00 – 22.00
Lyngvig Kirke

Carl Nielsen’s ’Tågen letter’ opens up for Debussy’s and Gubaidulina’s expressive and sonorous universe, which encircles Astor Piazzolla’s South American rhythms.
With his sonata for flute, viola, and harp, Debussy points far into the future and Gubaidulina is in his ‘The Garden of Joys and Sorrows’ also very inspired by the Orient.

Charlotte Norholt, flute
Tine Rehling, harp
Anette Slaatto, viola

Program:
Duos for flute and harp by Carl Nielsen and Astor Piazzolla
Trios for flute, viola, and harp by Sofia Gubaidulina and Claude Debussy.

Together

Wednesday, August 25th
20.00 – 21.15
Haurvig Kirke

The time with corona has allowed us to experience what distance can be, which is also the theme of Erhan Sanri’s composition. Conversely, we dream of uniting, as do the tones in Isang Yun’s ‘Together’. Rachel Yatzkan brings the opposites together in her trio ‘Sound Ripples’, which will be premiered at the concert. The old masters Telemann and Bach will together lead us from one composition to another.

Helge Slaatto, violin
Anette Slaatto, viola
Frank Reinecke, double bass

Isang Yun: Together, for violin and double bass
G.Ph.Telemann: Kanon, for violin and viola

Kvindelige Stjerner

Thursday, August 26th

At this concert, female stars from two different worlds meet:
The popular Michala Petri, who for a lifetime has been one of the world’s leading recorder virtuosos with her eternally youthful playing. In the company of the Late Summer Festival Vivaldi Players, she will also perform some of Vivaldi’s most beautiful concerts. Again can also the Swedish trio Kv. be experienced as they visit the festival for the third time. With the infectious joy of playing, the three women have taken the audience by storm, with their fabulous music which they like to call ‘Nordic Klezmer’, but which is completely unparalleled.

At the request of the Late Summer Festival, the Norwegian composer Cecilie Ore has composed the duo ‘Whirling’ for Helge Slaatto and Frank Reinecke, which will be premiered at the concert.

Vindue mod Norden

- Extra concert

Sunday, August 29th
20.00 – 22.00
Koncertkirken, Blågårdsplads in Copenhagen

With this concert, we want to show what an exciting creative environment the Nordic region has to offer, both in terms of composers and musicians.
Women like Cecilie Ore in Norway, Rachel Yatzkan in Denmark – and of course Michala Petri, who has the whole world as her podium – are three fascinating examples of excellent artists here from the Nordics. In addition, not least the Swedish Kv. Arken, three creative female musicians who frolic in unique ‘Nordic Klezmer’.

We reserve the right to make changes to the program.

Ticket for one concert: DKK 100,-
Any excess tickets can be purchased at the entrance.

We are incredibly excited to be able to bring the music all the way to the North Sea again – and of course, we hope that it can be a big celebration that we can be together again. Regardless, we place a high value on safety, and for the same reason, there may be a reduced number of seats for each concert. We, therefore, ask everyone to buy their tickets in advance.
