2022

JAN

After a hectic "last-month of 2021", with plenty of  concerts            (before a sudden cultural lock-down a week before Christmas) , the new year has begun peaceful with a travel to The Canary Island. A couple of weeks with time for composing, like usual, was of great value, before the new semester at NTNU started.

In May Henning will celebrate his 70 years anniversary. It doesn´t belong to his personality to give this a huge focus, but not everybody is listening to such an "ear", and  celebration-concerts will take place. Beside these, other concerts and performances will be put on-line succesively, as soon as information is accessible and confirmed. 

During the spring we can also look forward to the release of his new album by the lable 2 L, including three of his bigger concertos; Borders for Violin and Orchestra, REB for Pan-Fute and Orchestra, and Solhverv (Solstice) for Harmonica and Orchestra. All performed by Trondheim SO.


Let's hope that 2022 will be a year with less covid and less restrictions. That's what the world needs right now!

P.S.

Not to forget; 31. JAN, both "Trikken to Auswitch" as well as  "Ingen hverdag mer", both films by Elsa Kvamme, with music by Henning, will be shown at the Norwegian main- broadcasting Nrk 1 and Nrk 2 in connection to the International  day of Holocaust.
