Bergen in the Springtime
The Bergen International Festival (21 Mai - 04 June) released the 2014 programme today.
Perhaps most interesting for those of you into classical music, dance and theatre, but I have made some preliminary hooks in the list by the names Steve Reich, The Tiger Lillies and Trio Mediaeval, Arve Henriksen with Bergen Cathedral Choir.
During the same period the Nattjazz jazz festival is also happening (22 - 31 May).
The programme is not complete yet, but it looks promising, with Julia Holter, Fire! Orchestra, Stian Westerhus with Pale Horses, Nils Petter Molvær, etc etc.
The videos: Steve Reich's Clapping Music arranged and performed by Santi Carcasona (YouTube) and Julia Holter: Horns Surrounding Me (Unseen Recordings on YouTube).
