Janne Thomsen performs Orfeo I
Acclaimed Danish flute player Janne Thomsen performs Musgrave's ever-popular work for flute and electronic at Stockholm's Konserthuset on September 18. Orfeo I is intended as a simple retelling of the famous legend. The flute represents Orfeo and the electronics, recorded by premiere performer James Galway in 1976 on a variety of flutes, represent other characters and elements in the story. This will feature in a programme of Chaminade, Marteau and Kahn.
