Grieghallen in Bergen, Norway has, in spite of severe corona restrictions, been able to arrange a series of philharmonic concerts. In the period between January 19th and February 12th Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra has done a combined streaming and live festival – Wintermezzo with great soloists and conductors, and a wonderful programme.
During most of the festival period, a total of 200 audience have been permitted in the great hall of Grieghallen which has a total capacity of 1600.
World class performers like Leif Ove Andsnes is playing Mozart, Vilde Frang is soloist in Beethoven’s Violin Concerto, Tine Thing Helseth performs Hummel’s Trumpet Concerto and our Musician in Residence, Víkingur Ólafsson is soloist in Bjarnason’s Piano Concerto – Processions. And much more.
In times when the market for conferences and exhibitions is practically non-existing it is encouraging to be able to invite audience in to experience live music. For those who are not able to attend in person, all concerts have been streamed at bergenphilive.no.
