The concert will take place in the beautiful Sankt Lukas Church and tickets are on sale now. You can find more info about the concert here.
‘Altid Sammen’ is a new concert with Danish lyrics written by Efterklang and arranged and produced in collaboration with the baroque ensemble B.O.X. Here is little video introduction to the project.
We are writing a concert for Efterklang and B.O.X (an ensemble that plays new music on baroque music instruments). The new piece will premiere January 6th 2018 in Antwerp in Belgium at deSingel for the MixMass Festival.
We are quite excited about the progress and the music we have created so far.
Tonight we start our LEAVES tour with a sold out show in Store VEGA in Copenhagen. We are ready and excited! Doors open at 19:00 and we go on stage at 20:00.
Tomorrow we were supposed to continue the tour in Uppsala, but we regret to inform that the Uppsala concert has been cancelled due to logistical reasons out of our control. All tickets will be refunded and their will be no rescheduling.
Next week the tour continues in The Netherlands for the Cross-linx festival in Eindhoven, Groningen, Rotterdam and Amsterdam. The week after we visit London on March 9th and Brussels on March 10th.
Here is a photo of Lisbeth Balslev – one of the two soprano singers in the show. It was her Birthday yesterday. She turned 72. She is our hero!

The videos were all filmed in the nuclear basement where ‘Leaves – The Colour of Falling’ had its premiere during Copenhagen Opera Festival in the Summer of 2015.
