WILD FRANG finally to Lofoten!

Unfortunately, this year's violin soloist Liza Ferschtman has had to cancel her visit, but a super substitute is coming in.

We have tried for years to get Frang as an artist, but something has always stood in the way. When we had to look for another violinist this time, we were very lucky. Vilde was free exactly the three days we needed her the most.

Ferschtman was to play Bartok's first violin sonata with Leif Ove Andsnes himself, and not many people have that in their repertoire. But Vilde Frang has recorded it on disc, and later in the summer she will again play the sonata in Andsne's own festival in Rosendal. "I just love that sonata, and to be able to play it one more time with Leif Ove - and that in Lofoten - is just a dream scenario", says an enthusiastic Norwegian superstar. When this deal fell through, she had just finished a week as a soloist with the Berliner Philharmoniker.

The sonata will be performed in Svolvær church on Wednesday 10.7 at 9.30 p.m.
