Meet the composers taking part in Borealis Ung Komponist
After an application process Borealis has the pleasure to announce that we’ve invited Alan Ó Raghallaigh, Kristin Bolstad, Tine Grieg Viig and Øyvind Skarbø to take part in Borealis Ung Komponist – a mentor programme for composers in the early stage of their career and which we believe can shape future music experiences. The program will encourage broader discussion and dissemination of young composers’ work in Western Norway.
Towards Borealis in March 2018, composers Alan Ó Raghallaigh, Kristin Bolstad, Tine Grieg Viig and Øyvind Skarbø will work closely with four internationally renowned mentors and the string quartet Rosella about developing four new works. Norwegian Christian Wallumrød and Øyvind Torvund, American Natacha Diels and English Joanna Bailie are invited as mentors for these young composers to challenge them to think beyond the established musical norms. The mentor program consists of workshops, mentor meetings and discussions for staging of the concert.
Borealis Ung Komponist is supported by Morten Eide Pedersen Memorial Fund, Norwegian Society of Composers and Bergen kommune.
