G((o))ng Tomorrow

Hey, any readers present in Koncertkirken in Copenhagen 23 October during the "G((o))ng Tomorrow" - festival?

Part of the program here:

20.00 Athelas Sinfonietta Copenhagen & Jomi Massage

Athelas Sinfonietta Copenhagen; Jomi Massage, solist; Martin Nagashima Toft, conductor.

New works by:Henriette Groth, Peter Bruun, Regin Petersen og Morten Olsen
Based on music by Nico and Robert Wyatt.

Robert Wyatt /Peter Bruun:
Free will and Testament
Sight of the Wind

Nico /Henriette Groth
Evening of Light
No one is there

Robert Wyatt /Regin Petersen :
A last Straw

Morten Olsen/Jomi Massage: Nico
I. The Beginning – prelude
II. Song number one: As a Child
III. The Middle: Interlude
IV. Song number two: Who Am I
V. The End: this is the end, my only friend, the end

Danish paper Weekendavisen didn´t seem all too happy (Danish link), saying that that the main purpose seemed to be to "add some classical elegance to the original songs" (my not too good translation there).

More reviews somewhere?
