The arcitectonic village-treasure, the Church-building, which has influenced life in Sør-Fron for the last two and a quarter of a centuries, made the most perfect setting for this masterly concert-experience, which was only set up once on the occasion of the Peer Gynt Festival 2012.
Inbetween – and accompanied by the music. Dennis Storhøi performed chosen acts from Peer Gynt.
With several of the best artists of Norway gathered in the same church-room, the expectations, of course, reached the ceiling.
