Tine Thing Helseth explains:

"Edvard Munch often used the same motif for several of his works, in variations. I wanted to transfer this to music, to present six different versions of one melody - one for each concert during the festival.

The challenge went to my good friend and colleague Jarle Storløkken (who's also performing at the Late Night concert with TTHQ Saturday night). The melody in question is the Norwegian folk tune "Om kvelden". In its lyrics the descriptions of nature almost underlines the longing for love. A universal longing we can all identify with".
