Torsten Juul-Borre, klaver

 

 

 

Torsten Juul-Borre er føddur í Minnesota, foreldur hansara vóru danskir innflytarar, sum fluttu til California fyrst í 60-árunum. Hann byrjaði at læra hjá Dorothy Renton McBain pianisti í The North County of San Luis Obispo County. Sum ungur (tannáringur) fekk hann frípláss (scholarship) til The Music Academy in the West í Santa Barbara, har hann lærdi hjá Dr. Reginald Stewart. Hann vann fyrsta pláss í Alice Nelson Scholarship Competition og framførdi við San Luis Obispo Symphony sum 16 ára gamal.

 

Sum 17 ára gamal var hann tikin inn á Musikkkonservatoriið í Keypmannahavn. Har var hann í 7 ár hjá lærarum sum Arne Skjold Rasmussen og Kjell Olsson, við klaver sum høvuðsgrein. Á konservatoriinum fekst hann eisini við kammartónleik, undirspæl og orgulspæl. Í Keypmannahavn framførdi hann til konsertir í Tivoli og Summarkonsertirnar í Charlottenborg.

 

Torsten Juul-Borre er sera virkin sum konsertpianistur, bæði í Evropa og USA, eisini hevur hann spælt konsertir á fleiri av gomlu, søguligu orglunum í  Evropa.

 

Tónleikur er mál sálarinnar, sum endurspeglar allar lívsins royndir, framførslur Juul-Borre eru sterkar og ógloymandi. “Music is wrought with beauty and with logic” sigur hann og gjøgnum sínar framførslur strembar hann eftir at endurgeva “gleðina, dýpdina og kraftina” eins og hann upplivir tað. Hansara framúrgóða spæl megnar at halda áhoyraran bundnan frá teimum fyrstu tónunum heilt til endan.

 

Konsertirnar verð hesar

Hósdag 3. septembur kl. 20 í Mentunarhúsinum í Fuglafirði.

Leygardagin 5. septembur kl. 16 í Norðurlandahúsinum.

Frederic Balazs(1919 -                             Sonata for Piano

I. Stuff of the moon
Runs on the lapping sand
Out to the longest shadows.
Under the curving willows,
And round the creep of the wave line,
Fluxions of yellow and dusk on the waters
Make a wide dreaming pansy of an old pond in the night.
                                                                 (Carl Sandburg)
 
II. The Sea and Father Damien's Little Church.
                                                                 (Molokai, Hawaii)

                                                                  III. All I can give you now is broken-face gargoyles.
All I can give you now is a double gorilla head with two fish

                                                                  mouths and four eagle eyes hooked on a street wall,

                                                                  spouting water and looking two ways to the ends of the
street for the new people, the young strangers, coming,
coming, always coming.
                                                                 (Carl Sandburg)
