Art Exhibition 2018

As part of the concept for the festival, Professor Gunnar Danbolt will curate a two-part exhibition focusing on reactions to World War One in painting and another on the paintings of Håkon Bleken. Together, these exhibitions will accompany the music that will be performed, an accompaniment that will hopefully promote reflection and deeper understanding. Open 10. May - 2. September.

The Festival Players from England: The Winter´s Tale

13.07.18 at 19.00 and 14 July at 13.30., The Court Yard (under a roof)

Written by Shakespeare in his later years, The Winter’s Tale is an intriguing mix of drama and comedy.
Sparked by an obsessive envy of a perceived relationship between his Queen and his oldest friend, Leontes, King of Sicilia, sets in motion a train of events which affect two kingdoms and two generations; there is jealousy and joy, revenge and romance, loss and discovery, remorse and revelry, and an amazing revelation.

Rosendal Chamber Music Festival

Rosendal Chamber Music Festival

“In the shadow of war (1914-1918)” – Rosendal Chamber Music Festival 2018

Introducing this year’s programme, Leif Ove Andsnes commented “The early 20th century was one of the most extraordinary periods in music with an enormous variety of new musical styles which burst onto the scene. Over four days the Rosendal Chamber Music Festival will focus on the years 1914 – 1918, exploring a poignant and diverse legacy of music which was written by composers – either in reaction to or in spite of the war that raged around them.”

Rosendal Chamber Music Festival in cooperation with the Kristian Gerhard Jebsen Foundation.
