Nordland Music Festival Chamber Music – Academy Program
SPIRE is a mentoring program presented within Norland Music Festival, specifically designed for talents within the classical music sphere that facilitates self-development in several areas. SPIRE´s focus is to support musicians in development of artistry both on their instrument as well as in the process of developing their career. Participating musicians will be working in close collaboration with Eldbjørg Hemsing, who is taking the role of Artistic director and Mentor of the program.
Nordland Music Festival is one of the oldest music festivals in the Northern Arctic part of Norway, celebrating 40th anniversary in 2020. Apart from presenting some of the biggest artistic names during a 2 week festival program, SPIRE is an edition to the festival core that aims to look at stimulating and building a much stronger young artistic base in the city of Bodø and in the Arctic region.
“ Most important for young musicians is to know that there is no set path someone should follow they should be evolving curiosity and stimulate their experimentation to not become only musicians, but also thinkers, leaders, entrepreneurs and agents of change. We have the responsibility of shaping a more future oriented generations of classical musicians, where artists are the driving force towards a society with culture at its core, not afraid of experiments and possible failures.”
Eldbjørg Hemsing named 2018 ‘Artist in Residence’ at Stormen Konserthus
Violinist Eldbjørg Hemsing is the ‘2018 Artist in Residence’ at Stormen KonserthusBodø Norway, where she will perform in concert and recital on several occasions throughout the year. The iconic concert hall, which is situated in Bodø in the far North of Norway, was unveiled in 2014 and has been praised for both its world-class acoustics and initiative in presenting musical excellence. In her first appearance at Stormen Eldbjørg Hemsing will perform Massenet’s Thaïs: Méditation at the New Year’s Gala Concert (5 January 2018), together with the Nordnorsk Opera og Symfoniorkester – Arctic Philharmonicand conductor Henrik Schaefer. She returns in spring to perform Hjalmar Borgström’s Violin Concerto in G major, op. 25 (9 March) with the Nordnorsk Opera og Symfoniorkester – Arctic Philharmonic and Eva Ollikainen – Conductor, with an additional performance at KulturHuset i Tromsø. Also featured in the Residency are performances of Dvořák ́s Mazurek and Halvorsen’s Norwegian Dances for Violin and Orchestra at the NOSO ́s outdoor concert at Nordland Musikkfestuke, whilst her final appearance will be a specially programmed recital with the acclaimed Macedonian pianist Simon Trpčeski. “I am honoured to be appointed Stormen’s ‘2018 Artist in Residence” commented Eldbjørg Hemsing. “I can’t wait to get up to the North again where I have such fond memories of previous performances and where the wild and powerful nature gives a different dimension of musical inspiration. I am particularly proud to be performing Borgström’s violin concerto which is a piece that I have become passionate about and which deserves much more attention than it currently receives. He is a Norwegian composer who was famous at the beginning of the 20th century but whose name has completely dropped from programmes both at home and abroad.”
