Me Quitte by Niels Rønsholdt is a significant piece in SCENATET’s repertoire, and now it will be released on CD.
SCENATET has recorded Me Quitte together with Niels Rønsholdt and Anna Katrin Øssursdóttir Egilstrøð. The CD will be released by Dacapo Records May 14th.
To celebrate the release, Dacapo Records and Edition-S will host a release reception at SPOR festival 2016.
Niels Rønsholdt’s piece Me Quitte was commissioned and premiered by SCENATET in 2013, and since then it has been performed in a number of countries in various versions for ensemble as well as for symphony orchestra. In Me Quitte Rønsholdt turns the classic love song by Jacques Brel, Ne Me Quitte Pas, inside out. Rønsholdt sings the words backwards and begs his lover to leave.
The release reception is held in connection with the Danish premiere of Niels Rønholdts Songs of Doubt.
