Hedvig Mollestads 21:12
Premiere! 21:12 was written by Mollestad, originally for solo guitar. The work was commissioned for the Vintersolverv exhibition in December 2017 by painter Ørnulf Opdahl.
Opdahl’s oeuvre extends over 50 years, being most famous for his romantic contemporary interpretations of the mighty nature of Sunnmøre. 21:12 is based both on Opdahl’s paintings, but also very much based on Mollestads own experiences with the moods of Norways western nature, with special focus on light and dark, and the transitions between them. The work is now expanded and transformed to better suit a larger format. For this performance Brekken, Marte Eberson and Axel Skalstad will endeavor to communicate the strong, dazzling sunshine over snowy peaks and thundering darkness, as well as the smell of the sea and rotten driftwood!
