Norway’s uncrowned queen of cabaret Tora Augestad steals the audience back to Berlin during the interwar period. Cabaret as entertainment and art form played a significant and fabled role in those fertile and fatal years of European history. From Bar to Barricades follows the threads of Arnold Schönberg’s cabaret songs, Brettl-Lieder, with servings of the 20th century’s most cutting-edge vocal work Pierrot Lunaire, also by Schönberg. In his search for topicality and a satirical view of his time it was biting in its irony and demanded honesty in its performance. Joining Tora Augestad for this concert is the versatile pianist Trygve Brøske in addition to her own ensemble Music for a While.

Tord Gustavsen and Simin Tander perform familiar Norwegian psalms freely translated into the Afghan language Pashto, and Sufi poetry which is translated into English. Afghan-German Tander is one of the most captivating voices on the European jazz scene, and they are joined by Gustavsen’s regular drummer partner Jarle Vespestad and the ground-breaking trumpeter Nils Petter Molvær. T IC K E T Standard: 290 Under 30: 150 Festival Card: 30 % discount BT Fordel: 25 % discount Tord Gustavsen is acclaimed for his unique musical style and he creates creative and lyrical music that challenges the boundaries between modern and melodic jazz. Psalm melodies have shadowed Gustavsen from his childhood in churches and chapels, and, he says, serve as a powerful source of inspiration and new interpretations through life’s stages. In Simin’s versions the familiar melodies take on a mystical dimension through the sound created in the beautiful Pashto language. The interpretations also create political and theological controversy when the contents of psalm texts express a multi-faith universe when impulses from Sufism, Tantra and Christian mysticism are combined.
