Project summary

Musica Borealis aimed at presenting contemporary art aficionados some of the most important contemporary Norwegian chamber music works, a musical territory quite unknown to the Romanian public. The whole project was built around the Norwegian composer and musicologist Lasse Thoresen’s presence as main guest, together with Duo Interplay (Maiken Mathisen Schau – flute and Trond Schau – piano). Besides the Norwegian contemporary music concert (8 works written by some of the most important Norwegian composers – Lasse Thoresen, Arne Nordhorn, Bjorn Kruse a.o.), the project consisted also in two conferences and two composition workshops held by the main guest, professor Lasse Thoresen. The first conference focused on the techniques Mr. Lasse Thoresen used in writing his own music, while the second discussed Enescu and Bartok’s music in Norwegian culture. During the workshops, young Romanian composers, students at the Music Academy in Cluj, were welcome to present some of their works and to discuss technical and philosophical aspects of musical composition.
