Alhambra – Granada

DSCF6231Alhambra in Granada is always pure inspiration.  Here I captured ” la Puerta del vino” from which they sold wine in the 13- 14 century. Its is also the image that Manuel de Falla sent to Debussy on a postcard from Granada to Paris and inspired him to compose “nights in the garden of Spain”. Falla brings some bars of this piece into his “homenaje a Debussy”. In Granada and Alhambra – everything is poetry.

Performance of the Fehmarn Belt Suite

Fehmarn Belt Guitar Orchestra is a collaboration between the two citites: Eutin (Germany) and Nykøbing F. The members of the orchestra are guitar students, adult amateurs and a few professional guitarists.
The Fehmarn Belt Suite is composed especially for this ensemble by the jazz composer Svend Klammer from Lübeck. Therefore you notice the rythmical influences during the 8 movements.
The musical direction is taken care of by the collegues : Andreas Von Zoost, Mille Bureau, Arne Wolff and Dorte. The performance will take place in Eutin (Germany) 5th of july 2015.

In october 2015 the piece will be performed in Copenhagen and Guldborgsund.

DSCF5979Concert at the medieval center of Nykøbing F with students. Here we performed hymns and troubadour music. The students got in contact with another kinds of sounds and music and a whole different way to live. Thanks to Guldborgsund gildet to make this possible.

Feldenkrais course

moshe citatThis weekend I was atending to a course in the Feldenkrais method by Nana Graversen in Copenhagen. The course was very inspiring and there are elements that I will use as a pilates instructor. For musicians it is especially good the way this method stimulates the brain.

Concert in Klosterkirken with students

DSCF5954Performing in the beautiful church Klosterkirken in Nykøbing F with students. Actually the idea of the concert was to be able to perform “Cuban landscape with rain” by Leo Brouwer and the piece came out very well. This piece only works with very good acustique. However, there were also pieces by Albeniz, Falla and Maximo Diego Pujol.

Medieval Music

35I am working on a medieval music project for my students. The project consist of a lecture in medieval music and the ancient greek music philosophy. It will concern Platon and Pythagoras, Gregorian, troubadour and Minnesang, Ars Nova and much more.

We will perfom music by Bernard de Ventadour, Richard Lionheart and Rumelant. Mainly troubadour and minnesang. Finally we will perform this at the medieval center dressed in medieval costumes. I think it will be great fun!

This event will take place 16 of may at 16.30

Andalucism in Music – Conference and concert

After living 15 years in Spain Mille specialized in the spanish national music and flamencogy.
These studies will now turn into a serie of combined ”concert – conference” that shows the influence from flamenco and popular elements in the spanish national composers.

The conference is very visual and afterwards the public can connect music with images.
It concerns flamenco history and evolution, the arabic heritage and Al Andalus, gipsy culture, the romantic travellers in the 19 century and the national spanish composers.

The guitar part looks like a flamenco programme with stiles like : fandangos, zapateado, tarantos, malagueña, soleares, garrotín, guajiras ect.
Although, the pieces are classical and composed by the national composers: Manuel de Falla, Joaquin Rodrigo, Isaac Albeniz, Emilio Pujol og Joaquin Turina. This concert will be performed from may 2015.
