“Alae” is a full-length work, an evening’s performance for one pianist and three dancers, together engaging with Beethoven’s magnificent piano music. The work is an artistic convergence between Örjan Andersson and New York-based interpreter of Beethoven Per Tengstrand, one of Sweden’s most successful musicians on the international concert stage. “Alae” was created using three of Beethoven’s sonatas as a springboard' “His life with the sonatas and the pictures and memories they conjure up in performances around the world have become the working material for me and the dancers,” says Örjan Andersson. “I am fascinated by how we listen to music and what the pictures create from that listening.”
