Hellstenius: Still Panic

Thursday 14 April

Recording from concert in Grieghallen Thursday 14 April 2016


The piece Still Panic is commissioned by the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra as part of the anniversary programme OPUS 250. The work centres around a limited repertoar of musical material, and the bass clarinet changes between restless energy and more quiet parts. The music is forward looking and hectic, but not aggressive. On the contrary, it is transparent in a kind of quiet, underlying calm. Diego Lucchesi comes from Piacenza in Italy and has been solo bass clarinet player in the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra since 2003. He plays with a wide range of European orchestras and has cooperated with many highly recognized conductors.
