Missa Praesentis Dialectica was finally premiered, after 22 years of waiting. In the Uppsala Dome. This 50 minute mass contains several prophane poems as a relief to the liturgical parts – and the performance was overwhelming.
I was lucky to be a part of a wonderful collaborative process initiated by creative motor and organist Hans Davidsson, with sound/visual artists Carl and Åsa Unander-Scharin, video artist Lene Juhl, premiere dancers Oscar Salomonson Natalie Ogonek and Gabriel Davidsson, among others.
We created a musical/visual happening during the two day- church music symposium 16-17/9, in which Missa Praesentis Dialectica was included. With the best of performers: Anna-Maria Friman-Henrikson s, Amanda Flodin a, Carl-Unander-Scharin t, Karl-Peter Eriksson b. Paul Spjuth trpt, Hans Davidsson org, Camerata Upsaliae – 10 strings under Amus Kerstin Andersson, Uppsala Academic Chamber Choir and conductor Stefan Parkman.
A BIG THANK YOU TO EVERYONE INVOLVED!
