Program Notes by Lara Pellegrinelli

“I naturally want to combine materials that most people would say don’t fit together...In order for me to be happy, those materials really have to be categorically different, which may be my way of making the world more complicated than it is.”

— Øyvind Torvund

“I believe that the best thing for contemporary music is for it to be as diverse as possible in terms of its expressive possibilities.”

— Øyvind Torvund
