Scored for a quartet of accordion, bouzouki, recorder and cello where the two soloparts will be sung by rising star countertenor Morten Grove and the norwegian Soprano Liv Odveig Midtmageli. The premiere will take place at Takkelloftet, The Royal Danish Opera the 28th of January with app. 10 performances in total in february 2017.

Børneforestillingen “To Ensomme Musikere”

I samarbejde med Merete Steffensen, barokviolin har Pernille Petersen netop tourneret Danmark rundt med Levende Musik i Skolen med den nye produktion “To Ensomme Musikere” – med trylleri og historiefortælling formidler de barokmusik til de yngste klasser og viser hvordan man med musik kan udtrykke sig og ende med at blive gode venner, selvom man starter som to helt ensomme musikere.
