Evening Concert with Sigyn Fossnes, Graham Oppenheimer, Nicholas Jones, Kari Ravnan, Lars Lien, Joseph Shiner
Great Hall, Aberystwyth Arts Centre | £18 (£16) | 8pm
Kari Ravnan was born and brought up in the USA and studied at the Eastman School of Music before moving to Europe. She has given solo recitals and played in chamber ensembles across Europe and the United States; she has appeared as a concerto soloist with a number of well-known orchestras and has performed as principal cellist with several orchestras including the Bergen Philharmonic.
Lars Lien pursued his musical education at the Norwegian Academy of Music from 1986 to 1992. Ever since his student years he has devoted special attention to the creative processes generated by the symbiosis between composer and performer. Through this work he has sculpted an entirely new Norwegian performance tradition for the saxophone that has influenced and inspired new performers right up to this day. Lars has performed as chamber musician and soloist in Norway, Europe and the USA, and he has contributed to many recordings.
