Premiere: Lasse Thoresen - The land of Your Love

Overview

Concert focusing on women's lack of freedom of religion and expression in Iran. The Norwegian composer Lasse Thoresen has written three works for the renowned Norwegian vocal sextet Nordic Voices that are premiered in the beautiful Old Aker Church this evening.  The text is drawn from the works of the Norwegian writer Henrik Wergeland and Táhirih from Iran, who wrote poetry in the highly philosophical Sufi tradition. Táhirih was also a leading figure in the women's liberation movement in the 19th-century Middle East. Thoresen's compositions use both Iranian scales and Norwegian folk music, which with its blue tones bears similarities to Middle-Eastern music. In addition to these new pieces, the concert will feature some Renaissance works. The concert is part of the 2018 Oslo International Church Music Festival.
