Recension från Lira

Traversflöjten hör i åtminstone min föreställning hemma på de brittiska öarna. Markus Tullberg och Andreas Ralsgård har dock forskat i den svenska flöjttraditionen och satt traversflöjten på den svenska folkmusikkartan igen. Ett lyckat samarbete med de två eminenta folkmusikstjärnorna Niklas Roswall på nyckelharpa och Alexandra Nilsson på cello resulterar i delvis mäktiga‚ delvis nyanserat fina, men i samtliga fall fantastiska arrangemang. Kvartettens låtval och de mäktiga arrangemangen ger musiken en barockkänsla. Musikerna är väldigt närvarande i sitt spel. Alla stråk och blås är väl planerade, ändå låter samspelet lekfullt och lätt. Ingen sticker ut, alla fyra följer varandra och tonerna flyter samman till ett enda stort organ av sväng, glädje, lek och närkontakt instrumenten emellan. Att det är just två flöjter som spelar skapar en större klang och intensivare spänning. De förhöjer varandra. Jag rekommenderar att lyssna på detta konstverk med hörlurar eller på konsert för att få ut det hela stora klangpaketet. – Lusie Rube / Lira

Scanian Folk Flute Workshop 23-28 June

Ralsgård & Tullberg welcome you to Skåne (Sk-OH-na) for several days of folk music played on the flute. Our flute course kicks off immediately after Swedish Midsummer and is suited to players of both keyed/unkeyed simple-system wooden flutes and Boehm-system silver flutes. We will be focusing on Swedish folk music and Nordic flute traditions. We will also work with melodies, articulation, ensemble playing and arranging. The course will be held in western Skåne. For long-distance students who want to experience more of Skåne, we recommend a visit to the charming island of Ven, in the body of water between Sweden and Denmark. There you can experience the music and dance of traditional Midsummer celebrations, as well as a spelmansstämma (a festival for folk musicians). Just after the flute course ends, the big festivals and gatherings around Sweden get
started. Many of these events are in close proximity to the venue of the flute course and those that take place in Delsbo, Bingsjö and Boda and at Siljan, are some of the year’s most popular musical highlights. After attending our course, you have the opportunity to experience several of the finest and most important folk music events in Sweden.
The exact location of our course is not yet confirmed, but if you wish to book flight tickets, the closest and most suitable airports to arrive at are Kastrup (Copenhagen Airport), Sturup (Malmö Airport) or Ängelholm Airport.

Here is a brief schedule:
June 23: Arrival and registration date
24-27 June: Classes, workshops, concerts, sessions, dance and excursions
28th of June: Departure date


The cost of the course will be approximately €350, and includes accommodation, breakfast and lunch.
