  • The National Museum – Room 68
  • 15.00–15.15

In conjunction with the “Master to Master” exhibition, three new compositions have been created in response to artworks in the National Museum’s collection.

Today’s premiere is dedicated to Room 68 in the Collection Presentation. Entitled “Fragments of Reality”, this room focuses on early abstract art.

In just a few years, Harpreet Bansal has distinguished herself as one of Norway’s most exciting composers. Here she plays a violin made in Brescia in 1690 by the famous luthier Giovanni Battista Rogeri. Just as Rogeri combined the construction styles of Brescia and Cremona, Harpreet fuses art music from Western and Eastern traditions.
