More Music! festival has dedicated a whole day of their program to Efterklang.
Come and join us in Brugge, Belgium on April 8th 2016.
They are calling it REVERBERATIONS: An Evening with Efterklang.
We are bringing the entire LEAVES team for a concert version performance of the opera that we co-composed with Karsten Fundal.
Our other band Liima, that we share with Tatu Rönkkö, will also be performing and there will be screenings of the films An Island (by Vincent Moon & Efterklang) and The Ghost of Piramida (by Andread Koefoed & Efterklang).
LEAVES premiered at Copenhagen Opera Festival July 2015 in co-production with Sort/Hvid. The opera is composed by Karsten Fundal and Efterklang and features English lyrics by Ursula Andkjær Olsen. All 16 original performances took place in a abandoned hospital / cold-war bunker and were completely sold-out.
The performance at More Music will be a concert version of Leaves, with the same team of singers and musicians from the Copenhagen performances.
Singers: Lisbeth Balslev (soprano) – Morten Grove Frandsen (counter tenor) – Katinka Fogh Vindelev (soprano) – Nicolai Elsberg (bass) – Casper Clausen (Efterklang)
