The works in this solo recital by violinist Karin Hellqvist show how a performer can develop close creative relationships with composers. Having accumulated a myriad skills and musical experiences throughout her career as an interpreter, Hellqvist offers up her unique artistic palette as source material for collaborations with several composers including Carola Bauckholt, Liza Lim, Christian Wallumrød, Henrik Strindberg and Manos Tsangaris. 

The diverse programme in the rich acoustics of Kulturkirken Jakob showcases Hellqvist’s exploration of Scandinavian folk, electroacoustic music and extended violin technique. All of which have evolved in tandem with the specific interests of her composition partners: Lim’s penchant for non-Western musical practices, Bauckholt’s meticulous imitations of real-life phenomena, Wallumrød’s introspection and his fascination for vintage technologies such as K7 tapes, to name just a few. The concert marks the release of a new album featuring many of tonight’s works.
