Björk – „Orkestral Global Live Stream“ Konzerte im Oktober und November 2021

Lesezeit2 Minute, 24 Sekunden

Im Oktober und November diesen Jahres finden vier BJÖRK-Konzerte der ganz besonderen Art statt: Live aus der Harpa Concert Hall in Reykjavik, ausgestrahlt per Stream weltweit, wird die Künstlerin mit über 100 isländischen Musiker:innen auftreten, die bei der Entstehung ihrer Diskographie eine wichtige Rolle gespielt haben. Mit den Auftritten wird zudem Geld und Aufmerksamkeit für Kvennaathvarfid gesammelt – eine Wohltätigkeitsorganisation, die Frauen und Immigrant:innen unterschiedlicher Herkunft in Island unterstützt.

Die Konzerte finden am 11., 24. und 31. Oktober sowie am 15. November statt. Bei jedem Konzert gibt Björk unterschiedliche Songs mit Unterstützung jeweils verschiedener Ensembles zum Besten. Björks Instrumentalarrangements werden von Musiker:innen des isländischen Symphonieorchesters, des Flötenseptetts Viibra und des Hamrahlíð-Chores ohne Elektronik oder Beats vorgetragen. So kann man die besonderen Stücke von Björk nochmal ganz neu erleben.

A note from Björk:

dear friends

i would like to invite you to some concerts
to honour folks who got hit hardest in the coronavirus
and the black lives matter movement
and to honour how many icelandic musicians i have worked with through the years

i recorded almost all of my albums with local musicians :
homogenic with an icelandic string octet
medulla with schola cantorum ( an icelandic mixed choir )
volta with 10 brass girls i found all over the island and then later they formed wonderbrass
biophilia with langholt´s church girl choir graduale nobili
vulnicura with a 15 piece string ensemble
utopia with 12 female fluteplayers who later formed the flute septet viibra
cornucopia with hamrahlíð´s choir conducted by þorgerður ingólfsdóttir

all these albums where then performed all around the planet with these musicians
together they are over hundred people !!

and we are going to celebrate that we are all healthily exiting quarantine together by playing concerts in harpa music hall for 4 weekends

my input into the feminist fight is to brag about that almost all of those arrangements are by me
unfortunately this is something that is almost always ignored when women are arrangers

the concerts will be in the afternoons and will also be streamed live online, where there will be an option to donate to the icelandic women’s shelter – which supports women of all origin in iceland

for those attending in person, after the concert we will be offering food to raise money in support of this charity

the concerts will be „unplugged“ or acoustic and performed without beats and electronics
the concerts will be performed with the icelandic symphony orchestra and guests

i feel we are going through extraordinary times
horrifying but also an opportunity to truly change
it is demanded of us that we finally confront all racism
that we learn that lives are more important that profit
and look inside us and finecomb out all our hidden prejudices and privileges

let´s all humbly learn together
transform

humongous love

– björk
