"For the past months the Norwegian pianist, composer and former “Edvard Munch Ambassador”, Aksel Kolstad (also Metier Artist in Residence) has performed his Edvard Munch reflections at the Munch Museum in Oslo for a “screaming audience”. Now he is performing his small concert-reflections through a musical and creative perspective in NYC for the first time. The Scream is sold, but there is a new scream in town – an artistic scream that started in 2010 when Kolstad had his debut in Carnegie Hall with a full house and a standing ovation. And now he´s back, screaming for more."
TIME Magazine recently wrote a small article about Kolstad and his concert venue in Oslo worth reading.
