At the heart of this concert, Robert Schumann’s song cycle of disillusion and regret Dichterliebe is presented in a new arrangement for voice and chamber orchestra by Henrik Hellstenius. 

To sing it, we welcome one of the most expressive singers alive, Tora Augestad, who will embody the melancholic world of Schumann’s rejected poet-lover with her body and her voice.

After the passion and pain of Schumann’s songs, and the expressionist strain of Isang Yun’s tapestry for strings, Tapis, this concert of smaller-scaled orchestral works succumbs to joy. Schubert wrote his Fifth Symphony while still in his teens, which shows in its exuberant freshness and wealth of invention.

Eun Sun Kim returns to Bergen to conduct this evening of bijoux masterpieces.
