Oslo String Quartet is back and look forward to play concerts at Oslo- and Bodø Quartet Series 24th and 25th of March! On the program are Schubert String Quartet nr. 15 in G major and "Er også me borne/ Are also we carried" by Magnar Åm. This piece was commissioned by the quartet, and they will perform it together with the dancer Solveig Styve Holte.
24th of March Oslo String Quartet will also release one more ep of the series of mini-cd’s!
Enjoy the beautiful words about "Are also we carried", written by Magnar Åm (only in Norwegian):
Slik eit insekt kan gå på overflatehinna av vatn, er det kanskje også noko usynleg som held oss menneske oppe, gjer oss uredde for å leve, og villige til å vekse?
Released in the new mini-cd series from Fabra: Oslo String Quartet performing Over the Rainbow, Knutsen & Ludvigsen and Gimme Gimme Money Money! Recorded in November 2013 and March 2014 at Jar kirke in Oslo. Order from FBRS-order, digital download, your own physical copy or listen to streaming. Design by Erik(sen), Erik Johan Worsøe Eriksen.
After a period of maternity leave the Oslo String Quartet will soon be back on track with new and exciting projects. Two “Tosca&co”-performances will kick-start the 2015 season in Kristiansund 1st of February and Bodø the 3rd of February, after which we are going to launch our new (still unnamed) Schubert project, in which the phenomenon time will be a prominent feature. We guest the “Oslo Quartet Series” in Oslo in March with this program, and perhaps you might stumble upon a tiny CD-release at the same event… With two gorgeous twin boys in the luggage we face the future with renewed enthusiasm and fascination for the great string quartet repertoire☺
The Oslo String Quartets next concert is taking place February 1st in 2015. This is due to the most happy circumstances; Liv Hilde has given birth to two wonderful boys in June and is presently spending her time with her family!
