The pianist Jan Gerdes & the soprano Lisa Tjalve share the passion of contemporary music. In their concerts they pay special attention to this kind of music. We need to listen to the “Presence“. The music of contemporary composers is especially a great gift to us. It reflects the time that we are living in, and we have the opportunity to speak with the composers about the interpretation. We can perform the piece exactly as they imagined it. We have a sort of tradition how to paraphrase older compositions, but we still have to guess. We try to get as „close“ as possible. Gerdes and Tjalve´s concerts are always combined with strong acting.
