TKO, Telemark Chamber Orchestra


Lars-Erik ter Jung recently premiered two works by Norw. Composer Jan Erik Mikalsen, his piano concerto "Just for You" played by pianist Ellen Ugelvik and the Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra, premiered at the Ultima festival in Oslo on September 15, and "The Munchsonata", version for string orchestra (2016) played by Telemark Chamber Orchestra in Sarpsborg Church on September 28.

"The Munchsonata" together with "Lied" (2012) by Mikalsen will be performed by ter Jung / Telemark Ch.O. in Kampen Church in Oslo on October 11. The works will then be recorded together with "Chase" (version for Chamber Orch. 2006) by Nils Henrik Asheim and "Study on a Norwegian Hymn" (1976) by Magnar Åm, also played in the concert at Kampen.

"Telemark Chamber Orchestra" is since 2016 no longer supported by its region of origin, namely Telemark (Norway). As the Artistic Director with this dynamic ensemble, Lars-Erik ter Jung will be fronting its forthcoming activities both in Norway and abroad - eventually under another "brand" - continuing his task of keeeping up the orchestra as a vital co-operator for composers and the contemporary field of music in particular, already brought forward under ter Jungs artistic leadership, now widely acknowledged.

Among upcoming projects is the new opera "Kimen" by Magnar Åm, with libretto by Oda Radoor, based on a novel by Norw. author Tarjei Vesaas, commissioned by ter Jung and the Telemark Ch.O. The premiere will take place in June 2018; a concertant performance was done on July 1 this year in Volda, the composers hometown, and another concertant performance will take place at Sentralen in Oslo on December 5.
