Telemark Chamber Orchestra – a dynamic promoter of the music of the 21st century During the past few years the Telemark Chamber Orchestra (TCO) has gained an increasingly high profile in the Norwegian cultural arena. After over 20 years of wide-ranging activities in the county of Telemark, as of 2016 the orchestra will no longer be funded by the Telemark County Administration. The TCO is being reorganised with its headquarters in Oslo, while at the same time it will continue to pursue its valuable work within the area of classical and contemporary music at both national and international levels. In 2014-2015 the TCO conducted an extensive collaboration with the Grażyna and Kiejstut Bacewicz Academy of Music in Łódź, Poland, after the allocation of EEA funding. At the national level, this CD is testimony to the fact that the orchestra has a long list of collaborators, not least in the contemporary music sector. Several of these works were recorded on the Fabra label: “Nostos” (2005), “Thommesen / Bibalo” (2013), “Bite the Dog II” (2013) and now “Tapestry”. The orchestra has also released the CD “Passione” (2011), featuring works by Haydn, Mozart and Elgar. The orchestra has collaborated on CDs with Ingrid Andsnes (piano), Camilla Kjøll (violin) and the improvisational trio Poing, among others, and has also participated in two organ concertos on the CD “Henrik Ødegaard: Organ Music” (2012) together with Ghislain Gourvennec. Lars-Erik ter Jung is the artistic director of the TCO. Working with contemporary music has, for many years, played an integral part in his activities as well as those of the orchestra. Through commissions, recordings and creative productions, ter Jung has been instrumental in establishing the TCO as one of Norway’s foremost ensembles in the field, and there was clear evidence of this at the concert held by the TCO at the Ultima Oslo Contemporary Music Festival in 2011, featuring world premieres of works by Bent Sørensen, Simon Steen-Andersen and Olav Anton Thommessen. The efforts made with regard to commissioning and premiering new Norwegian works have also resulted in the chamber opera “Benk med og utan hund” by Jon Rørmark and Ragnar Hovland (2004), the family musical “Billenes bryllup” by Gro Dahle and Guttorm Guttormsen (2001), the violin concertos “Nostos” by Bjørn Kruse (2002) and “Bite the Dog II” by Mark Adderley (2013), the double concerto “Nyslått” for two Hardanger fiddles by Henrik Ødegaard (2000), “Rapid Clouds” by Olav Anton Thommessen (2011) and “Concerto da Camera nr 3” by Antonio Bibalo (2005), to mention a few. Lars-Erik ter Jung has been the artistic director of the TCO since its inception in 1992. His organisational contribution has also enabled the orchestra to achieve its current position. Starting in the early 1980s, ter Jung forged a successful career as a violinist, and served as concertmaster for the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra among other positions. He is currently a very highly regarded conductor, and is involved in a wide range of activities with his extensive repertoire. Among the ensembles he has conducted are the Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra, the Norwegian Chamber Orchestra, the Oslo Sinfonietta, the BIT20 Ensemble, the Swedish Chamber Orchestra and the Cairo Symphony Orchestra. The TCO’s most important financial supporter is Arts Council Norway. nyMusikk’s Composers’ Group nyMusikks komponistgruppe (NMK), established in 1978, is an organization for composers and sound artists in the beginning of their careers.
