Ib Nørholm premieres new symphony

Now 80 years old but still an unchallenged master of the large scale symphony. Ib Nørholm celebrates the premiere of his twelfth symphony ‘Realities’ in Odense Concert House April 28 and 29. The new symphony is written for orchestra, soprano and tenor soloists. The ambiguous title is clearly referring to the three poets Thorkild Bjørnvig, Lene Henningsen and Inger Christensen whos lyrics form a poetic structure throughout the symphony.

Odense Symphony Orchestra is conducted by Johannes Gustavsson, and as soloists we hear soprano Gitta-Maria Sjöberg and tenor David Danholt.

The concert takes place both days in the Carl Nielsen Hall at 8 PM.
