“Irrganger” video out now!

We were set for celebrating our 10-year anniversary last December, but the concert got postponed till May, and instead of postponing it yet another time, we recorded videos in Grønland church, of the two works for a full-strength Aksiom: Martin Rane Bauck’s “Irrganger” from our debut concert in 2010, and our 2014 comission from Johan Svensson, “Shiver”.

Today, we’re presenting “Irrganger”, first performed in the very same church on October 2, 2010, in collaboration with Ny Musikk. “Shiver” will appear straight after the summer!

The video was recorded and edited by Jenny Berger Myhre and Sigurd Ytre Arne, the sound recorded and edited by Christian Obermayer.

Stay tuned for the rest of 2021 and beyond – we will have premieres and performances of music by Marina Khorkova, Esaias Järnegard, Tine Surel Lange, Maja Linderoth, Christian Meaas Svendsen, Matilda Seppälä, Jonas Cambien and more!

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.
