Festivity was commissioned by UNOF (De Unges Orkesterforbund/Association for Youth Orchestras) in connection with the celebration of the Orchestra Year of 2024. The piece was premiered in January 2024 by the Oslo Philharmonic together with musicians from youth orchestras. 

The piece is available in three versions that can be played either separately or together.


This is the original version, written for full orchestra:

String Quartet

The version for string quartet is on a simpler level. This version also contains flexible wind parts, as well as beginner parts for strings.

Piano reduction

The piano reduction can be played by cultural school teachers or good students, either as a solo piece or as accompaniment.
