FROM HEART TO HEART!

Concert in aid of Ukraine.

The Vertavo Quartet earlier on frequently visited our festivals – actually all the way back to the Mozarthaven in the 1990’s. Their concerts were always a great success, so we are really looking forward to having them back for the lecture concert

HOMECOMING – Sunday March 20 at 17.00 at Park Hotel

where they present a nice collection of movements from string quartets by Norwegian composers like Christian Sinding, Ole Olsen, Catharinus Elling, Hjalmar Borgstrøm, Ludvig Irgens Jensen etc. – exciting, new music for most of us. A great opportunity!

“Homecoming” and peace in Ukraine

is today the most intense wish and dream of thousands of Ukraine refugees. Kulturelt Initiativ and the musicians would like to contribute to the unacceptable situation by donating the income of the ticket sale in full to our friends in Ukraine through Save the Children.

If the time doesn’t suit you all that well, we are very grateful if you still buy a ticket and thereby support Ukraine.

As Beethoven said about music – it communicates

“From heart to heart!”

You may buy tickets at hjertnes.no – or directly from us on [email protected]

The season in Midtåsen Sculpture Pavilion starts Sunday May 15 with a concert named “Tre Mussikanter” – with capital M and double S – a concert given by the high-spirited musicians Arvid Engegård, violin, Håvard Svendsrud, accordion and Svein Haugen, double bass.

Midtåsen Culture and Children Festival takes place in the period July 10 to 24 – and you may experience a lot of concerts, two children/family performances and daily Café Concerts.

The Autumn Festival, October 7 – 9, contains three lovely concerts with focus on Schubert’s music.

Thank you very much for being a part of the initiatives!

OUR INITIATIVES 2021

MIDTÅSEN CULTURE FESTIVAL

We are still celebrating Beethoven’s 250th anniversary – and we are continuously inspired by the eternal musical life of Vienna. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Richard Strauss, Arnold Schönberg and many of the operetta composers will colour this summer’s festival alongside Norwegian composers like Edvard Grieg, Johan Halvorsen – and the young Peder Barratt-Due. Not to mention the fantastic singers and musicians that will present all of the 42 concerts!

MIDTÅSEN CHILDREN FESTIVAL

Last summer Ludwig loved to take a walk by the pond at Midtåsen together with Ludvig from Flåklypa – and they are really looking forward to coming back this summer. Just to praise the beauty of nature through music and dance – and to make bonds of friendship by participating in the Ode to joy!

When Ludwig was 16 years old, he travelled to Vienna to study composition with Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Mozart was a wizard with music, and he composed the wonderful music fairy tale The Magic Flute. You may enjoy this fairy tale in the forest at Midtåsen – but please be aware of the scary fire-breathing dragon!

B32 – BEETHOVEN’S
32 PIANO SONATAS

We are very sorry to announce that B32 – the performance of all of Beethoven’s 32 piano sonatas – can’t be carried out this summer due to unexpected circumstances. The fantastic project is postponed to 2022 – either at Easter, Whit or during the summer festival.
