MICs Listen to Norway series continues with Hilde Torgersen/Cikada Duo/SISU: Will you give me to tell you – Works by John Cage


“Will you give me to tell you” features a highly competent line-up of performers: the Cicada Duo, percussion ensemble SISU and mezzo-soprano Hilde Torgersen. The subject of choice is works by John Cage, both well-known pieces such as Amores and lesser-known compositions such as Credo in US. Improvisation and experimentation is given a central place in the challenging structures penned by Cage. Prepared piano, toy drums, short-wave radio and plastic IKEA mallets are just a few examples of the unusual approach of the forward thinking performers. With a healthy disregard of convention, SISU, Cikada Duo and Torgersen represent a welcome vitality and creativity that complement Cage’s exploratory pieces well.
