A significant part of the ensemble Contemporanea’s concerts are for solo instrument with live electronics. In this program the solo violin is in focus.

Helianne Blais, violin
Ejnar Kanding, live electronics

J.S Bach (1685-1750), Remix of Partita No. 2 in D-minor, BWV 1004
Steve Reich (1936-), Violin phase for violin and pre-recorded tape (1967)
Ejnar Kanding (1965-), Berge des Urleids (1998-01)

The mandatory content in this project is the work Berge des Urleids (13 min.) by Ejnar Kanding, the title has a reference to the Tenth Duino Elegy by Rainer Maria Rilke (1875-1926).

The concert may include works by other estimated composers, as far as it makes sense as a musical whole. As a concert organizer you are welcome to propose different pieces. We are very positive to add new repertoire, world premieres etc. to this project. Please contact us for collaboration about this matter.
