WORLD PREMIERE of ‘Blooming’ - a new piece for piano, chamber orchestra and narrator by Norwegian composer Kari Beate Tandberg, commissioned by Insimul Sinfonietta, with the support of the Arts Council Norway.
The piece was first conceived as a musical reaction to the book ‘The Unwomanly Face of War’ by Belarusian Nobel Prize laureate Svetlana Alexievich. Through the course of its development, it evolved into a powerful statement of collective resilience and solidarity against the abuse of power - in Belarus and around the world - with focus on the themes of suffering and courage, hopes and dreams in our time.
