T IC K E T * Full price: 210 Under 30: 150 *Festival card: 40 %–30 % discount Did you think classical musicians always sit still? In that case you have not come across the woodwind quartet Carion. The programme is classical, but the ensemble puts great emphasis on communicating directly with its audience – and one another. They leave sheet music and music stands in the rehearsal room, and move around on stage to elucidate the way the music is put together. 'We play, and we show what we play. Through choreography, positioning on the stage and movement we shed light on the connections beneath the structure of the music.' This is how clarinettist Egīls Šēfers describes the characteristic approach of the quintet. One reviewer at a Carion concert wrote that 'the eye practically becomes an organ of hearing'! The award-winning ensemble has also been a great success at the Roskilde Festival with the Danish electronica guru Bjørn Svin, and has performed with classical celebrities including the flautist Sir James Galway. At the Bergen International Festival they appear at Fløien Folkerestaurant at the upper station of the funicular railway, with a fantastic view of the city. 'Whatever we do, there is always have lots of fun and good energy on the stage,' says clarinettist Šēfers. The Fløibanen funicular in Bergen is one of Norway's best-known attractions. The lower station is in the heart of Bergen, a short walk from the fish market and the Bryggen wharf. The 5–8 minute journey to the upper station (320 m above sea level) is an experience in itself, and at the top you can enjoy fantastic views over Bergen.
