Aksiom concerts, winter 2020–21

We are happy to announce two concerts during the darkest weeks of the year:

  • Aksiom 10-year anniversary concert at Caféteatret, Oslo, 13 December, 2020.
  • Klaus Lang’s missa beati pauperes spiritu in collaboration with Periferien in the Jacob church, Oslo, 16 January, 2021.

The 10-year anniversary combines old hits from the repertoire with newer pieces: Matilda Seppälä’s Frammentario (in a new version for Aksiom), Marina Khorkova’s a_priori, Salvatore Sciarrino’s Trio no. 2, Johan Svensson’s Shiver (from our CD), and Martin Rane Bauck’s Irrganger, from our debut concert in 2010.

In January we will finally perform Klaus Lang’s hour-long missa beati pauperes spiritu with Ditte Marie Bræin (soprano) and Martin Ødegaard (cantor) as soloists. The concert is a collaboration with the Periferien concerts series, and also includes works by Sarah Hennies and Morton Feldman.
