Un reve Norvegien
The Tale of Taliesin
ArtistsOla Asdahl Rokkones (saxophone)
St Petersburg Northern Sinfonia
The Tale of Taliesin by Martin Romberg (2009), Bør by Torstein Aagaard-Nilsen (2014) and Un rêve Norvégien by Kjell Habbestad (2002/2015) have all been commissioned by Rokkones. Although the composers have been inspired by literary works, the music showcases the classical saxophone in three very different musical surroundings.
With the saxophone as a narrator, we explore the ancient Celtic legend about Taliesin in a large orchestral work, the existentialistic poem Bør by Stein Mehren in a contemporary and experimental soundscape, and finally the famous visionary poem Draumkvedet where folkloristic elements fuse with a modern classical orchestral treatment.
Ola Asdahl Rokkones (b. 1983) lives in Troms in the north of Norway, and is one of few saxophonists working both within classical music and jazz. As a classical musician, he has appeared as a soloist with several renowned orchestras in Norway, Russia, Germany and France, among them the Mariinsky Symphonic Orchestra. He has commissioned and premiered music by numerous composers. As a jazz and ensemble musician he is highly profiled through several groups. In 2010 he was selected as the Norwegian representative to the prestigious European Jazz Orchestra. He has contributed on six album releases. He has also worked with various dance and theatre ensembles.
