Its exactly one week until the start of the third Rosendal Festival which Leif Ove Andsnes founded in the idyllic setting alongside a fjord on the west coast of Norway

Joining Leif Ove on stage will be Matthias Goerne (baritone), Anna Prohaska (soprano), Kirill Gerstein, Bertrand Chamayou, Eric Schneider, Ingrid Andsnes (piano), Henning Kraggerud, Akiko Suwanai, Johan Dalene (violin), Lars Anders Tomter (viola), Edgar Moreau (cello), the Dover String Quartet, Fabio di Càsola (clarinet), Guy Eshed (flute), Sivan Magen (harp) and Tim Gibbs (double bass).

Introducing this year’s programme, Leif Ove Andsnes commented “The early 20th century was one of the most extraordinary periods in music with an enormous variety of new musical styles which burst onto the scene. Over four days the Rosendal Chamber Music Festival will focus on the years 1914 – 1918, exploring a poignant and diverse legacy of music which was written by composers – either in reaction to or in spite of the war that raged around them.”
