This years final concert – what was played?

The final concert was also performed this year at Buksnes Church as a conclusion to the festival. With over 400 tickets sold, it was a worthy end to the festival week.

As usual, the program for the final concert is scheduled through the festival week. The last numbers are usually not decided until the same day as the concert itself. This contributes to some of the playfulness and spontaneity we want to create in the concert.

This year was also an extraordinary experience. Most of our musicians contributed in every way. Several solo pieces followed by one, two and three quartets together. This year the audience were also singing, which we received very good feedback on.

We have received several inquiries from dedicated audience members who want the program for the concert. Although this was announced along the way, it can be difficult to remember. The program from this year’s final concert can therefore be found below.
