«Den første gangen» v/Vigdis Hjorth & Nystrøm/ Venter/ Grydeland

The fantasies become reality.

Concert start: 15:00 Single ticket price: NOK 390

Rolf-Erik Nystrøm created the music for Vigdis Hjort's reading at the opening of the Literature Festival in Lillehammer 2021. For the concert at Kongsberg, he has brought along the formidable musicians, Ivar Grydeland on guitars and the South African vocal artist Juliana Venter to both create and intuitively create music to a brand new story from Vigdis Hjort about his very first time. A defining episode from her own life that gained great importance since then and an experience that made her realize that what we make up can be truer than what really happened.

This is the first time Vigdis Hjorth and these musicians perform something together as a quartet, although Venter and Nystrøm have worked closely for many years as a duo, and Nystrøm and Grydeland have played together in the old days.

The three musicians have a special interest in and long experience in creating music for text, and although all three are free improvising musicians, all three also have an unusually broad musical palette which creates the conditions for a very exciting concert.

Vigdis Hjorth (text/reading), Rolf-Erik Nystrøm (saxophones), Juliana Venter (voice), Ivar Grydeland (guitars)
