Human life

- 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.

Signe Asmussen, singing
Bogdan Bozovic, violin
The Danish Clarinet Trio, Tommaso Lonquich, clarinet · Jonathan Slaatto, cello · Martin Qvist Hansen, piano

Per Nørgård: Winter hymn ‘Som året går’, solo song

The Fog is Raising

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.

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 Yuns’ Together´. Rachel Yatzkan brings the opposites together in her trio ‘Sound Ripples’, which will be premiered at the concert. The same will be the great Danish composer Ole Buck’s new duo, for violin and viola – a commissioned work for Late Summer Festival 2021. The old master Georg Philipp Telemann leads us from one premiere to the next.

Helge Slaatto, violin
Anette Slaatto, viola

Female Stars

//SOLD OUT//

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 you can also experience the Swedish trio Kv. Arken Arken, who is visiting 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.

Then Niels W. Gade’s romantic fantasy pieces with Tommaso Lonquich and Martin Qvist Hansen. At the end, the entire Danish Clarinet Trio, an internationally successful ensemble, plays Beethoven’s youthful “Gassenhauer Trio”. 11.

- Extra concert

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’.

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, 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.

Of course, we follow the authorities’ recommendations and restrictions during the course of the festival. There will only be access to our concerts with valid documentation in the form of Coronapas – or other documentation that has been approved by the current restrictions. It is the audience’s own responsibility to bring documentation to the concerts.
