Näverlur of the year

The Rune Selén Culture Fund’s Näverlur of the Year is awarded to an individual or group working in Scandinavia which is especially involved in promoting herding music, wind music, birch-bark horn and traditional “kulning” (a type of falsetto herding song). In case you were wondering, a näverlur is the aforementioned birch-bark horn traditionally used when herding. So now you know.

Gothenburg Piano FestivaL

The final, with pianist Robert Wells, promises to be a crackling conclusion to this year's Piano Festival and will be filled with lots of lovely piano music for two, four and even eight hands!
