Two ensembles won the 25 000 NOK from Skjeies chambermusic scholarship.
Every year the Faculty of Perfoming Arts arranges a chamber music competition, which found place Thursday 23. of March this year. The first price, a scholarship from Skjeie at 25.000 NOK, went to both Duo Con Fuoco with Sorip Kim and Andreas Wetås Jara on cello and piano, and to the percussiongroup with Tomas Björn, Lars Ivar Thorkildsen, Øyvind Johansen, Margaux Racloz and Anthony Viander.
– I think its very fun to have won the chamber music competition, and to have gotten the opportunity to play along with highly skilled fellow students. It's also very nice to get recognition on what you're working for and that you're doing something good. The chamber music competition is a very fun event that gives the students a possibility to work with each other, says one of the winners in the percussion group, Tomas Björn.
Words from the jury
The jury lists these reasons on why these to ensembles won:
The percussion group showed an impressive precision and excelled with refined sound treatment and convincing interplay. This left a professional impression.
Duo Con Fuoco played fiery and energetic, but also showed exquisitely beautiful cantilene playing. They also contributed with a nice range of genres and jazz/fusion, playfully and with a «twinkle in the eye»
