Vestbygd Concert

Weather permitting, on Saturday, I’m off to the the little village of Vestbygd on Hinnøya, an island (arguably part of the Lofoten archipelago), about 4.5 hours drive  south of here, to play in a Være i Stillheten “concert” with my friend Christopher Briggs. The event is part of a culture weekend which also includes a mothers day meal and a concert with the village band.Vestbgyd_concert_01


The program will include:

Bach Bist du bei mir Voice
? 3 horn pieces Horn
Bach Prelude & Fugue in A minor ‘The Great’ BWV543 Orgel
Belier Toccata Orgel

Greig Morning Piano
Pachelbel Kanon Orgel
Beethoven Sonata ‘Pathetique’ – 2nd mvt Piano
Rodríguez de Alcántara Hoja de album Piano
Schubert Impromptu No 3 in Gb D899 Piano

As is usual with Være i Stillheten, all themusic is played live, and most of the piece are ‘accompanied’ pictures / video. Here’s a sample:

So, if you’re in the area, do drop in!

  1. I’m afraid Bist Du Bei Mir will NOT be voice, Jon – barring a recovery so miraculous that our churches will be standing room only. Bist Du Bei Mir will now be performed instrumentally, piano and French horn.

  2. good luck with your concert. wish I could drop in.Zella
