Ensembles

Are you hosting a chamber music concert, a church ceremony, an art exhibition or maybe a wedding celebration. Then maybe one off the ensembles I am playing in would be off interest for you. 

The trio “Triplicate” consists off Marie Helene Bessesen – clarinet and Linda Dahl Laursen – Piano.

Listening to the Trio Pødenphandt, Egelund & Carlgren you will hear beautiful music performed by soprano, guitar and cello.

Duo Kayaya & Carlgren specializes in music to be listened to either while siting in the concert hall on parquet or standing with a glass of champagne in hand.

Or maybe you would like to hear Duo Carlgren/Dahl Laursen play wonderful music written for cello and piano.

Panel 4

Knowledge mediation in different contexts

I work as a cellist in the Danish dance company “Next door project” and in the danish intermediation center for dancing, “Dansehallerne”.

With the dancing performance “Min farmors spøgelse” we bring up questions about what death can be. “What is death, really? Where has grandma flown? And when does she come back?” “Min farmors spøgelse” is a dancing performance for children in the ages between 3-8 years old.

I also have a passion for the methods of the cello and enjoy working as a cello teacher.
