Sounds of the North - Music - Hamburg

Smooth Electro meets classic.


In Sounds of the North several German and Scandinavian musicians will unite different music styles to create a harmonizing sound.


In our first "Sounds of the North" concert the two international renowned composers and producers Mashti Mads Nordheim (Copenhagen) and Peter Musebrink (Bremen) will be joined by Danish pianist Julian Svejgaard (Copenhagen) to improvise on the sounds of Maurice Ravel's Sonate for Violin and Violoncello  - performed by virtuoso artists Sono Tokuda and Valentin Priebus from the Hamburg NDR Elbphilharmonie Orchestra. 


The piece by Ravel is a chamber music symphony in four movements and a veritable universe of sound. The work, composed between 1920 and 1922, represents a turning point in Ravel's compositional oeuvre, it marks "an extreme turnaround," as the composer himself admitted. For "Sounds of the North" Mashti Mads Nordheim and Peter Musebrink will improvise on the sounds of Ravel's Sonate accompanied by live piano tunes.
