Bang on a Can cellist Arlen Hlusko plays my Sønderhoning paraphrase



Tonight at 22 Danish time, Bang on a Can All-Stars’ terrific cellist Arlen Hlusko plays the second of a series of livestream concerts on Facebook.


One of the last concerts the ensemble managed to play live, had my piece “Dances of Remote Islands: Seven Dances I Have Never Joined and Never Will“ on the program.


Tonight she plays one of my favorite traditional Sønderhoning Dances, “Skal vi gå til fremmede lande“, which in my fantasy island work was the only dance from reality — a little greeting to our rich folk music tradition on Fanø. She has now taken it across the Atlantic to New York.


Also experience music by Summer, Bach, Popper, Elgar and Oliver.
