The ruins of an old monastery peak in through the windows of a modern library in Tønsberg, where world-class artists will soon perform classical music that is out of the ordinary. “We’ll also use arenas like the old chapel Mariakapellet and a local art museum built on a former meeting ground for Vikings. This mix of past and present is
typical of Pure Classic Musikkfest,” says festival manager and flutist Charlotte Udø Kjeldsberg. Together with her husband, classical guitarist Runar Kjeldsberg, she has organised a programme full of surprising, international
elements for the festival’s third year.
