Spring of 2018:

* A new CD with The Telemark Chamber Orchestra, «CHASING STRINGS», is now released, with pieces by living Norwegian composers, all connected one way or the other with ter Jung. "Chase" (version for Chamber Orch. 2006) by Nils Henrik Asheim, "The Munchsonata" (version for Chamber Orch. 2016) and "Lied" (2012) by Jan Erik Mikalsen, and "Study on a Norwegian Hymn" (1976) by Magnar Åm. On Fabra - providing excellent sound, as always!

* A CD by Pro Musica - Norway, "Life Music", was released last fall. Ter Jung is conducting the violinconcerto "Sisyphus' Dance of Endless Struggle" by Norw. Composer Helge Iberg. Atle Sponberg is the soloist with The Norwegian Chamber Orchestra.

* Magnar Åm's new opera "Kimen" with libretto by Oda Radoor, built on the dark mooded novel by Norw. author Tarjei Vesaas, commissioned by ter Jung and the Telemark Chamber Orchestra, will be premiered in Volda, Norway, on June 8.
