* I am currently working on my first Wind Quintet, commissioned by Bergen New Wind Quintet, a very talented group of players. They are all students either at the Norwegian Academy of Music and The Royal Danish Conservatory. Premiere will take part sometime during the first half of 2017 and the piece will also be programmed at the BrassWind festival 2017.
* I have just finished a song cycle for mezzo-soprano and orchestra. I have chosen five poems from a cycle called "Det andre lyset" (The other light) written by the Norwegian poet Stein Mehren. Solist will be Carolina Krogius performing with Meininger Hofkapelle, conductor GMD Philippe Bach. The premiere will take place the 23th of February 2017 in a program that also contains music by Edvard Grieg and Sibelius Symphony no. 2.
* Coming up in 2017:
New piece for Bergen Philharmonic Youth Orchestra for their 20th Anniversary as the Hordaland county youth symphony orchestra (Ung Symfoni).
New piece for Borg Musikkorps as a part of the 450 years anniversary for Fredrikstad.
