Throughout the festival week, Wolfgang Plagge will hold several musical lectures with classical music as the theme. At the lectures he has the piano readily available for coloring and illustrations. In addition to the lectures, Wolfgang introduces several of the concerts, both in Vågan and Vestvågøy.
Wolfgang Plagge is remembered by the adult generation as the prodigy on piano. Today, he is both a sought after pianist and composer, and not least a spiritual and entertaining speaker. He likes to pull the keys to exemplify.
Three tailored lectures
For this year’s festival, Wolfgang Plagge has tailored three lectures that fit well with the festival, the program and not least the audience. The themes are meant to be simple to attract those who are not necessarily educated in classical music. At the same time, the point is that even simple themes within music can show how complex some things are. The purpose is to provide an increased understanding of the compositions, the music, and not least the classical music tradition as such.
NB: All lectures will be conducted in Norwegian.
