Press release from Surnadal Kulturhus:
There is our full hall of the year's New Year's Concert with the soloists in Trondheim in Surnadal Culture House. This boy is probably not enough night, also because Trondheim Solists have a "local" composition by Henning Sommerro in the playground.
"Local" is seen in the hermetic, because "Chrysillis" is a very musical piece that follows the hymn. Thomas Kingo says "trips" from Scotland, via Denmark and to Sunndalen. Kingo took over the deceased Danish priest's position and followed the priesthood. It was Cille Blankenborg, daughter-in-law born in Sunndalen, and Kingo was more than overcome enthusiasm for the widow. He scraped the magnificent love "Chrysillis" to him, but they did not last forever – Kingo every man next year. But the cohabitation lasted long enough for Kingo to hear about, and there the sign of the mountain, the mighty sunny nature (see the text in the hymn "Now pouring out the sun"). Henning Summer's piece wandered in both Scottish, Danish and Norwegian music with a deep stop for improvisations in the travel box.
Henning Sommerro wrote "Chrysillis" to Catriona McKay (Scottish Harp) and Chris Stout (Shetlandsfele), and the two Scottish musicians play at the concert in Surnadal.
However, these two are not the only guest musicians. The Swedish violinist Cecilia Zilliacus is also involved, and there will also be spelling compositions among others. Sibelius, Britten and Järnefelt at the concert.
