In Grieg's own living room Ingrid Andsnes, pianist and consumate communicator, will perform a programme she has divided into three parts: Step, Sway and Spin.
The programme is inspired by movement and rhythmics, and includes a commissioned work by the Norwegian composer Erlend Skomsvoll entitled Step Sway Spin.
The concert also contains works by Grieg, Stravinsky, Bach and Ligeti, plus A Map of Laughter by Missy Mazzoli, who is the 2021 Festival composer and Artist in Residence.
Events planned for the 2021 Bergen International Festival will be launched throughout the autumn and winter.
It is likely that plans for the 2021 Bergen International Festival will be affected by the pandemic. By launching performances and artists as they are confirmed, the Festival would like to draw attention to the work our wonderful artists do, while knowing that the final festival programme may look different.
The festival will follow the health authorities' orders and recommendations, and wants to create safe conditions and the least possible inconvenience to our audience. Therefore, ticket sales will not start until the spring.
