This year's tradition-rich late summer festival in KUMUS this year celebrates the rich art and music life that for more than 100 years has been Fuglsang.
The festival is called "Jeg Bodil" and is named after Bodil de Neergaard, who for many years was the soul of Fuglsang Herregaard, who made the place a cultural focal point.
It is Fuglsang still today with the historic manor house, which is now a hotel and restaurant Fuglsang Art museum and as the home of the Danish Chamber Players.
Composers who have a connection to the place are presented and the exuberant artistic life from the 1920s Fuglsang carried up to the present day. Carl Nielsen, JPE Hartmann, Emil Hartmann, Emma Hartmann,
Julius Röntgen, Niels W.Gade, Asger Hamerik, Edvard Grieg and Johan Svendsen as well as a quartet by Magareth Hammerik, which has only been played for the first performance, are on the programme.
The ensemble has invited distinguished soloists to the traditional three-day festival:
Tuva Semmingsen, mezzo-soprano, Sonja Richter, actor, Sophie Hagen, alto and Nikolai Bentzon, piano. In addition, the Danish Chamber Players have been expanded for the occasion with more wind instruments and an extra violin and double bass, so that we can perform the classical works from the venue.
During the festival, we present a brand new book: Toke Lund Christiansen publishes a biographical collection of poems about Bodil de Neergaard.
Flutist Svend Melbye will again this year lead the sonorous walk in the garden by Fuglsang og Fuglsang Kunstmuseum launches the first stage of its large Art Landscape during the festival.
We look forward to some festive days where Fuglsangs unique tradition of cross-aesthetic encounters vibrates and where the ensemble spins a musical thread through history.
The concerts will be held in the concert halls at Fuglsang Manor house and in KUMUS, which is next door Fuglsang Art Museum.
