“Something like dark blue” at Hvide sande Masterclass 2012

Every summer Hvide Sande invites young musicians to be part of a masterclass. Throughout the summer the participants are challenging their talents, which results in 16 concerts between September 13 and 22, 2012.

This year Morten Olsen’s new work Kuanos (2012) will be premiered by the Oceanside at the Lyngvig lighthouse. This venue seems to be the ideal place for the piece to be premiered; the title of the piece Kuanos is ancient Greek for something like dark blue. Olsen associates the piece with the sea’s sudden force and unpredictable ease and the music will mirror the movements of the sea’s temper combined with the feeling of being something like dark blue.

Maybe the piece will provide the answer of what that is like.
