KYIV a new composition about HOPE
Release on OUR Recordings April 19th
Composer and pianist Morten Jessen reached out to me last year with his composition KYIV, a 4 movement work for violin and piano, he wrote shortly after Russia invaded Ukraine. Morten had made contact with the Ukrainian violinist Natalia Gordeyeva, who had fled from Ukraine and now lives in Denmark, and they had begun a collaboration to raise awareness about Putin's insane war against Ukraine through music, and at the same time, to igniti a hope that is so important in the world`s current situation.

Bjarke Mogensen is an accordionist on a global scale – and now also the 'P2 Artist of the Year.' When he plays, he keeps his instrument close to his body and experiences it as a part of himself. The result is an intense and present musicality.

Welcome to OUR Recordings Newsletter October 2022
By Lars Hannibal
So much has happened since our last Newsletter, and while I will try not to focus too much on the state of the world, there is no denying that the geopolitical situation is extremely tense, as is anxiety over the inability of our leaders to address the growing climate crisis. And while music may only seem a diversion or commodity, I believe there has never been more need for the values of music, and for art in general, than at any other time. We must insist on humanity and the value of dialogue, and from there create a world that can be infinitely different, and infinitely better with room for everyone.

Welcome to OUR Recordings Monthly Newsletter
From Lars Hannibal:
Since our last newsletter, the world has changed radically. Europe and the world are now focused on the war tragically unfolding in Ukraine - a completely insane war that has been planned and initiated by Russian President Putin. How should we as citizens of the world respond to this tragedy? It is so difficult to accept and unbelievably hard to understand. Almost the whole world has distanced itself from this despot, who during his 22 years in power has demonstrated more and more clearly that he wants to re-establish a vast and terrible empire over the people of the countries which he has annexed during the last several years. Putin uses false rhetoric and deliberate falsification of history to legitimize this war. Despite strong international condemnation and sanctions, Putin continues his war, threatening the world with the ultimate weapon.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from all of us at OUR Recordings.
In this season of music and lights, we hope you enjoy the attached video, a set of variations on the traditional Danish “Nisselandsby” (Elf Village). Each year my family gets together and decides on a different theme for our holiday message, and this year my two daughters Agnete and Amalie wanted to make a Nisse presentation in recognition of these little gnome’s care for the environment!

Welcome to OUR Recordings Monthly Newsletter October 2021
After almost 18 months of a lock down that closed almost all of society, Denmark is now almost entirely open once again. We count ourselves very fortunate to have made it through and are very pleased that we now can start performing LIVE concerts again!
The late Summer and Autumn has been busy for us with concerts starting again – performances and recordings in Denmark, Norway and Sweden have been a joy after the long break.
