2009 is the centenary of Gunnar Berg, and his music is being played in denmark and abroad throughout the year. Tomorrow, his Spoon River, based on poems by Edgar Lee Masters, can be heard in a KlangKonzepte Nürnberg performance under the baton of the Agentinian conductor Jorge Rotter. The concert takes place in the Staatstheater in Nuremberg at 10.30 PM and marks the first performance of the music since 1959. Read more here.
Berg's music can also be heard in Denmark as cellist Toke Møldrup performs works by both him and Morten Olsen on Sunday April 26th at 8pm in the Sofiebadet in Copenhagen.
