"Masterclass for studentene ved Norgesmusikkhøgskole, bæsj og NRK "kan forøvrig oppsumere én av de siste dagene. Aldri en kjedelig dag på jobb, i alle fall!

Standing ovation in Lublin, Poland, three days ago during the Wieniawski Festival 2019, where also Vadim Brodski performed (!!!). (Last photo from the Lublin Philharmonic Concert Hall) In August I performed a couple of outdoor concerts in collaboration with Jeunesses Musicales (...what, you didn´t know I was Superman and could fly?) before I enjoyed playing in wonderful Copenhagen, which I will do again mid December. When I came back from Copenhagen in August I took into he woods like Robin Hood. Both projects on the pier and the farm made pretty cool stories on tv (TV2) !
Here is a short clip from the concert in Lublin this week, watch (out) from 6 min where I am fooling around with, and improvising over, Chopin while the brilliant Agnieszka Schulz manages to still keep it cool, haha! Click here for the video. Several concerts beeing planned solo and as a soloist with orchestra in Poland and Ukraine stay tuned. A couple of chambermusic concerts coming up next week in Oslo (Bogstad Gård) in addition to a lot of fun at Café de Concert. Let´s plan a playful concert or event together? My place or your place! Hit me - I´m open! (concerts, MC, inspirational lectures, stand up comedy)
A little P.S. for the local vikings: Klare for julebordsesongen? Jeg kan i den annledning flagge det uimotståelige kinderegget / den trefoldige julegrisen Kolstad:
Jeg kommer ferdig oppvarmet, klar til å bli servert :)
