Last week the Edition·S – music¬sound¬art office received an interesting parcel from the Royal Danish Embassy in Sofia, Bulgaria.
When we opened the parcel we found a DVD and a thank you letter from the Danish ambassador Kaare E. Janson. The DVD shows Sofia Philharmonic Orchestra’s celebration of the Danish EU presidency in the form of a TV transmitted concert on May 3, 2012 at Bulgaria Hall.
The concert included four Edition·S works; Friederich Kuhlau’s Ouverture from “Elves’ Hill” (1828), Carl Nielsen’s Flute Concerto (1926), Rued Langgaard’s Symphony No. 9 “From Queen Dagmar’s City” (1942) and H. C. Lumbye’s Champagne Gallop (1845), which together make “The Golden Age of Danish Music”.
Furthermore, there is a TV ad on the DVD, which was shown on Bulgarian national television and shared on Facebook in the time before the concert. At last, there is an interview with the Danish flutist Thomas Jensen and the conductor of Sofia Philharmonic Orchestra Angel Stankov from a Bulgarian morning show.
In his letter, Kaare E. Janson thanks Edition·S for professional collaboration. We return the thank you to Sofia and the ambassador for the kind present!
