Borisova-Ollas/Faingersh: Hamlet

Victoria Borisova-Ollas and Elias Faingershs Hamlet – a drama for trombone and orchestra – receives its Norwegian première on 31 March.

“The most exiting part of the programme was the world première of Hamlet – a ‘drama for trombone and orchestra’ by Victoria Borisova-Ollas and Elias Faingersh, conducted by Lars Rudolfsson.

The orchestral part was tight and full of feeling, but at the same time perfect for Hamlet, played by Elias Faingersh, to take a central role.

The solo trombone part made a very strong impression. With the help of live electronics (loop-mashines) Faingersh recorded layer after layer of polyphonic structure, to which he then performed.

In the ghost scene he created a fascinating atmosphere with winding melodies, old-fashioned church bells and sounds of waves, culminating in a powerful explosion.”

(Pressespiegel, Tobias Lund, on the world première)
