A musical dialogue with Festival Artist Jan Groth’s work.
Peter Sheppard Skærved, violinist, performer and storyteller in equal proportions, likes to mix contemporary music with less commonly performed repertoire – often treasures he has dug up himself.
This time he wants to surprise, enchant and disturb visitors to the festival exhibition of the work of Jan Groth.
On his playlist for these pop-up concerts is a new cycle of Signs – caprices for solo instruments and early music by various composers. The works reflect the dialogue between Peter Sheppard Skærved and Jan Groth, emanating from some of the fundamental aspects of Groth’s work and attitudes towards such Nordic traditions as the runic alphabet.
Works by PETER SHEPPARD SKÆRVED, MARINI, BASSANO, TORELLI, DE MACHY, MATTEIS and more.
Pop-up concerts are free, but require an entrance ticket to Kunsthallen.
Children, members of Bergen Kunsthall, art students and members of NBK: free admission
