Destiny concert, Blue Grotto

All in all, the undersigned was deeply impressed by the creation composer Anniken Paulsen presented in Blue Grotto. In particular, I liked the creative brass element where she blasted some boundaries. I was also very pleased that she introduced a new, fresh, somewhat jazzy style in Destiny, the musical she is developing.

I would also like to thank the higher powers that the Anniken has been paired with the excellent lyricist Thomas Howarth Kay and I hope to hear more from this symbiosis of music and poetry in the future.
