Info for NODEBOG

Nodebog presents musical pleasures and “divertissements” from 18th century Norway.

The melodies are found in hand-written music books containing both international “hits” well known throughout Europe and local favorites – Halling dances and Pols dances are featured alongside minuets, marches and English country dances. These rediscovered treasures from the past can only be recreated through living performance today, here by flautist Hans Olav Gorset and his fellow musicians. These melodies may not seem important to the music historian, but to the listener they certainly are – being international “hits” of yesterday – and, who knows, perhaps becoming the hits of today!

'At the moment I see it like this: history can both inspire and constrain our perfor- mance. The debate is not just about historical sources – it is also about our relationship with the past. What do we want from our past? How much consideration should we give to historical facts? These are important questions, and our answers to them are partly influenced by ideological factors, but at the end of the day it is important that our ideological convictions do not stand in the way of a gratifying musical experience. We must not hide behind historical facts, but rather dare to build on them. A proverb from the Far East is apposite here: “Don’t walk in the footsteps of your masters, but seek what they were seeking.“ (Hans Olav Gorset, 2013)
