Commission from renown composer Craig Courtney
As a part of Deux Voix's mission to expand the available repertoire for organ and trumpet, we have commissioned renown composer Craig Courtney to write a new work for us. The new work will be based on a Norwegian folk song and will be premiered this August 2018 during our guest artist residency at the International Organ Festival in Bergen, Norway. We expect it will be about 5-6 minutes in length.
This is the second new work that Deux Voix has commissioned as a duo in the less than four years of touring. We are fortunate that a composer of Craig Courtney's acclaim and caliber is willing and interested in working with us on this project, and are extremely excited about such a unique opportunity to perform a brand new piece for an international audience.
