Concert · Double Bass Extravaganza

2020-11-29
The concert series Moderne Mandage - Modern Mondays offers a double bass spectacle tonight, when they celebrate the late double bassist Rolf Dahl.

Mette Nielsen is featured at the concert with her piece 'Under vandspejlet' for double bass solo.

The Norwegian bassist Rolf Dahl was a great asset to Danish music throughout his career. He played with Copenhagen Phil for 35 years. Rolf Dahl passed away in 2019 and Moderne Mandage has dedicated a concert to him and his instrument. The concert borrows its title, Musica Nigra, from a series of works exploring the character of the double bass, composed by Axel Borup-Jørgensen in close collaboration with Rolf Dahl.

The concert programme overflows with pieces featuring the double bass solo as well as in various constellations, including three works published by Edition·S.
