Event-Report of the Final Event of our coordinated Composer- and Writer-in-Residencies in Visby/Sweden 2018
Foyer Almedalsbiblioteket (University Uppsala) | May 2018
The overwhelmingly positive response we received after our bilingual reading concert filled us with great delight.
With Sarah Yegit's high-quality translation of the literature from Christiane Schwarze from German into Swedish, the audience was able to follow the lecture very well.
As the composer and participating pianist, I am still very touched by the dedication and enthusiasm with which our musical guests brought my compositions - including two premieres - to life.
They were wholeheartedly involved and spoke of the "magic that unfolded between music and poetry".
The intensive listening audience donated long, enthusiastic applause.
With heartfelt words and numerous hugs, they also thanked Christiane intensely for "the wonderful lyrics"!
We will carry this evening for a long time in our hearts and would like to thank once more all our sponsors, artists and supporters:
Tonsättarcentrum VICC, in particular Sten Melin and Jesper Elén; Baltic Center for Writers and Translators (BCWT), in particular Lena Pasternak and Patrik Muskos; Almedalsbiblioteket Visby, in particular Rose-Marie Tornquist & Christer Boberg; GotlandsMusiken, Kulturradet and Region Gotland.
Sarah Yegit (literary translation), Angela Frontera (drums & percussion), Emilio Sacarias Estrada Bencomo (violin), Nils Ossman (double bass).
