Introducing the new season: Norway comes to Zankel Hall
From June 22–27 of this year some of the finest chamber musicians in the world performed in the historic village church in the picture-postcard village of Risør on Norway's southeastern coast. Those artists, who lived on a ship in the harbor and mingled with the audience throughout the village during the 20th Risør Chamber Music Festival, will travel to Carnegie Hall for a series of four concerts from December 1–4, 2010 under the artistic direction of Leif Ove Andsnes and Lars Anders Tomter.
Throughout November and December we will be posting exclusive interview and performance videos from the festival to give you a taste of the treats that are in store for Carnegie Hall audiences.
Interviews will include Leif Ove Andsnes, Lars Anders Tomter, and Marc André Hamelin, and we will post performances by artists that include Measha Brueggergosman, Soprano, Marc-André Hamelin, Piano, Torleif Thedéen, Cello, and Lars Anders Tomter, Viola.
