It is with great pleasure and pride that the festival presents Valentin Silvestrov as this year's festival composer. You can experience his beautiful music at many concerts throughout the festival week, and we look forward to presenting the entire festival programme on 13 June.
Valentin Silvestrov is Ukraine's foremost living composer and has been an important voice in European musical life for over 60 years. He fled Kyiv shortly after Russia went to war against Ukraine last year and now lives in exile in Berlin.
His beautiful, quiet, and meditative music is popular worldwide, and the little piece Postlude no. 3 has been played over 11 million times on Spotify!
13 June at 20.00, Dokkhuset
