LOTR Concert: Oslo, Norway Report

August 28, 2005 at 9:18 am by xoanon  - 

Norwulf writes: As part of the celebration of the 100th anniversary of Norwegian industrial giant Norsk Hydro, a free-for-all concert was held yesterday in the world-famous Vigeland sculpture park in Oslo. Part of the programme was a short version of Howard Shore’s LOTR symphony, featuring soprano Sissel Kyrkjebø and violinist Annbjørg Lien. The performance, by the Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra, was complete with big-screen movie clips for that Middle-earth atmosphere. No rave reviews I’m afraid, but an occasion for the fans nonetheless: check out for pictures of Norwegian Minister of Justice Odd Einar Døerum dressed as Bilbo Baggins. The evening was finished off with a rare live appearance by Norwegian pop group A-Ha.
