 The State Museum of Art has prepared the exhibition “Japanomania in the Nordic countries 1875-1918” in cooperation with the Ateneum in Helsinki and the National Museum in Oslo, where the show has already been exhibited. The exhibition shows japanism’s influence on Danish and Nordic art.

What happens when the North meets Japan? An exhibition about the transformative impact of Japonisme in Nordic art.

Exotic geishas, new ways of depicting nature and rarefied aesthetics. Encountering Japanese art changes the European art scene in the second half of the nineteenth century, and the widespread enthusiasm for all things Japanese also makes itself felt in Nordic art. Compositions become more asymmetrical, and the imagery becomes more decorative, simplified and meditative.

Close to nature

Artists turn their attention to microcosms, studying birds, fish, insects, branches and flowers in minute detail. The snow-capped Mount Fuji, blossoming cherry trees and “The Great Wave” – Japanese art changes the art scene in Europe. This exhibition tells the story of the advent of Japonisme through works by artists such as Edvard Munch, Vilhelm Hammershøi, Anna Ancher, L.A. Ring, Van Gogh, Albert Edelfelt and Claude Monet.

Nordic collaboration

Japanomania in the North 1875-1918 is arranged in co-operation with Ateneum in Helsinki and Nasjonalmuseet in Oslo. It is the first exhibition ever held on Danish soil to demonstrate the influence of Japonisme on Danish and Nordic art.

Hans Abrahamsen Nominated for the work “Let Me Tell You”

Hans Abrahamsen has conquered new ground in his new composition Let Me Tell You. Until now Abrahamsen has written very little for voice, so a large song-cycle is really uncharted territory. All the more remarkable is how well-suited the voice part is to the voice of Barbara Hannigan, for whom the piece has clearly been written. Hannigan, who herself recognises that the piece seems written with her in mind, tackles its often unusual demands in a highly idiomatic way. The orchestral accompaniment is a virtuoso canvas of what the modern symphony orchestra can do.

dn7u3882_meitu_2
During the performance by the Berlin Philharmonic, one could enjoy a maximum of clarity and an almost austere sparseness in their clever handling of the thin textures and minute details – handling that elicits the work’s ultimate expression – not to mention the elegant use of micro intervals which gives the piece a unique flavour. The texts by Paul Griffiths, a fantasy on Hamlet’s Ophelia, provide the perfect vehicle for Abrahamsen’s and Hannigan’s interpretative powers.

Hans Abrahamsen fik Nordisk Råds musikpris for “Let Me Tell You”

Danske Hans Abrahamsen modtog Nordisk Råds musikpris for sin sangcyklus “Let Me Tell You” ved Nordisk Råds prisuddeling i København.

dn7u4040_meitu_5

01.11.2016

Hans Abrahamsen fik overrakt prisen på 350.000 kr. af sidste års musikprisvinder Svante Henryson i DR Koncerthuset.

Motivation

Det er indlysende for enhver, der hører Hans Abrahamsens sangcyklus “Let Me Tell You”, at det er et værk af meget høj kvalitet. Værket kan forstås på mange niveauer og udtrykker både substans og raffinement i alle sine skrøbelige, men samtidig håndfast håndterede teksturer. Den symfoniske opbygning kan virke traditionel, men er også ny og opfindsom, hvilket giver værket en meget nutidig karakter.

Det er skrevet med stor faglig dygtighed, ikke mindst når det gælder de blændende orkestrale nuancer, men især håndteringen af sangen er bemærkelsesværdig i kraft af den virtuose udnyttelse af stemmen og de musikalske evner hos Barbara Hannigan, som værket er skrevet til. Det er i sandhed et idiomatisk værk.

Det følelsesmæssige udtryk er fantastisk detaljeret og stærkt i sine mange facetter, især i den lange afsluttende sang (ligesom i Mahlers Das Lied von der Erde), hvor værkets mange forgreninger sammenfattes og binder hele konceptet sammen.

Alt i alt står det som et værk, der vil overleve i repertoiret og være en konstant udfordring for ambitiøse sopraner i mange år fremover.

Linedance fra Kronborg til Kina (1)

Vi er en Linedance forening i Helsingør, der hver sommer danser ved havnen i Helsingør, med den skønneste udsigt til Kronborg.

I august 2015 blev en kineser der hedder Mr. Xiao interesseret i vores dans. Hans syntes det ville være sjovt hvis vi kunne komme til Kina og vise vores dans. Vi må indrømme at vi troede at han bare lavede sjov med os men vi fandt ud af at han virkelig mente det, og så begyndte planlægningen, og en anden kineser ved navn Wen Hou Zhou der også bor i Danmark kom ind i billedet, og sammen med ham dannede vi Dansk- Kinesisk  venskabsforening, der hurtigt fik mange medlemmer både i Danmark og Kina, og vi fik sammen forberedt en tur til flere kinesiske byer

Endelig, den 6. september 2016 var vi, 13 personer heraf 10 linedansere, som tjekkede ind i lufthavnen. Chokket kom da instruktørens billet var blevet annulleret. Efter venlig bistand fra indtjekningspersonale og Air China kom vi dog alle rettidig afsted.

Onsdag, den 7. september var det en flok forventningsfulde danskere der ankom til Beijing. Vi blev afhentet af bus og kørt til vores hotel da vi trængte til at slappe af efter rejsen. Vi gik samlet ud og spise frokost. Vi blev positiv overrasket over menuen der bl.a. bestod af Pekingand som var meget bedre and i Danmark frisk udskåret ved bordet. Smagte fantastisk. Efter frokost var vi ude og se på området omkring hotellet. Meget lv og musik på gaderne.    Folk kiggede nysgerrigt og rigtig mange stoppede os og ville fotograferes sammen med os.

Med på turen har vi også haft Zhong Min Peng Journalist og Royal  Presse fotograf fra ROYAL PRESS som sluttede sig til os efter han havde været i Hang Zhou hvor han deltog i G20 topmøde KINA 2016.

Han har været til stor hjælp for os, og vi har været meget glade for at have ham med på turen.

Torsdag, den 8. september

Torsdag, den 8. september gik turen – efter morgenmaden – til Den Kinesisk Mur, vi var så heldige at vi fandt en svævebane så vi slap for de mange trapper op til platformen hvor vi skulle danse. På muren var der igen mange der ville have taget fotografier at og med os. Men det blev helt vildt, da vi tændte for musikken og begyndte at danse. Der kom flere og flere omkring danserne som fik mindre og mindre plads til at danse. Under og efter dansen fotograferede folk helt vildt. Vagterne fortalte os at vi var de første der nogensinde i historien havde danset på muren. Det var en  fantastisk oplevelse

Aftenen sluttede med middag.

Fredag, den 9. september

Efter morgenmad gik vi til Den Himmelske Fredsplads og Den Forbudte By. Det var en stor oplevelse men også anstrengende. Der var over 30 grader i solen, tusindvis af mennesker, lige så mange trapper og turen varede langt over 3 timer og der var stadig ting vi ikke fik set på grund af de mange mennesker. En del af gruppen tog en knallerttaxa til hotellet – man oplever byen på en helt anden måde skal jeg lige sige. Resten af gruppen tog offentlig bus – hvilket var en oplevelse i sig selv, bussen var proppet til med mennesker – til shopping i den dyre ende af byen. Gruppen fik frokost med bl.a. Pekingand

Lørdag, den 10. september

Efter morgenmad gik turen til Sommerpaladset hvor vi sejlede i turbåd.

Efter frokost var vi inviteret af en lokal dansegruppe hvor vi dansede Linedance og de viste os hvordan de dansede på de mange pladser rundt i byen. Vores instruktør lærte dem at danse Linedance, hvorefter vi dansede sammen til den kinesiske musik. Efter dansen kørte vi til en restaurant hvor vi var inviteret til spisning. En stor oplevelse med mange retter, snaps og mængder af fællessang på begge sprog.

Søndag, den 11.september

Efter morgenmad kørte vi på markeder, både til Silkemarked og et andet stort marked med meget lave priser på alt.

Efter aftensmaden er det tid til en kop kaffe i byen inden vi skal pakke til vores afrejse i morgen.

Mandag, den 12. september

Efter morgenmaden kørte vi ud i en park hvor vi mødte en gruppe dansere.

Først viste de os deres dans der er meget feminin i forhold til hvad vi danser, og derefter viste vi dem vores Linedance, de ville rigtig gerne danse med, så vores instruktør lavede lige en workshop på en meget let dans, så de kunne være med, og det var de meget glade for, derefter dansede vi sammen deres dans, hvilket ikke var helt let for vores dansere.

Efter en tur gennem parken fik vi frokost og så kørte vi videre til stationen hvor vi skulle med nattoget videre til Hang Zhou.

Tirsdag d. 13 september

Vi ankom til Hang Zhou hvor vi også skulle danse på universitetet, og derefter inviterede ledelsen på meget fin middag, og vi fik alle sammen en fin gave.

Onsdag d. 14 september

Vi var på en fantastisk tur til et munkekloster, hvor vi så en masse smukke og meget kraftfulde figurer, og senere var vi på virksomhedsbesøg og mødtes med ledelsen fra H C Andersen fonden, der arbejder for samarbejde mellem Danmark og Kina, og aftenen sluttede med stor middag.

Torsdag d. 15 september

Månefestival i Kina, det lyder som en hyggelig og dejlig tradition, hvor man mødes og hygger med familien og spiser månekager, eller sender gode tanker til dem man ikke kan være sammen med, vi kørte med bussen til Hang Zhou hvor Wen Hou Zhou skulle deltage i et meget stort og vigtigt møde, og da han var stået af bussen, fortsatte vi til hotellet, hvorefter vi gik en tur for at finde et sted at spise, og efter maden gik vi en tur gennem byens oplyste og livlige shopping gader, vejret var meget varmt og fugtigt, da det have regnet meget voldsomt hele dagen, vi skulle tidligt i seng, for at kunne stå op og køre videre allerede kl. 04 næste morgen.

Linedance fra Kronborg til Kina (2)

Fredag d. 16 september

Efter en lang bustur, med en kun lille pause på et truck stop på vejen for at få lidt morgenmad ( rigtig dejligt for de havde både kaffe og sandwich med skinke og ost ) kom vi ved middagstid til byen Zhejiang, hvor vi som en overraskelse skulle besøge Aficion chokoladefabrik der holdt chokoladefestival.

Fabrikken har en hel lille landsby for børn, med en masse sjove ting

Vi var inviteret som VIP og blev modtaget af Zhejiangs  Borgmester  og skulle overvære  et meget fint show med deres nyeste produktet og efter showet fik vi en meget fin taske med chokolade som gave.

Vi fortsatte til vores fine hotel og efter en lille pause, hvor vi gik en tur rundt i gaderne omkring hotellet blev vi hentet af Borgmesteren og  kørte til den gamle by hvor vi først blev sejlet rundt,  og derefter gik en tur i byen og fik set en masse spændende  huse mm.

Efter en dejlig middag, gik vi rundt i de smalle gader med en masse spændende boder , og da vi kom over en af broerne i byen, kom vi til en gade der var direkte modsat af hvad vi havde set, der var diskoteker med masser af lys og meget høj musik og rigtig mange mennesker der hoppede rundt på dansegulvene, det var sjovt at opleve den kæmpe kontrast fra de små stille gader, en rigtig dejlig dag og aften.

Lørdag d. 17 september

Borgmesteren har inviteret til frokost på en fin restaurant hvor vi fik prøvet noget helt nyt, ved vores pladser var der en gryde nedsænket i bordet, hvor der var kogende vand i, og så skulle vi selv tilberede vores mad, det var meget anderledes, især da der kom store levende rejer på lange pinde på bordet, det var lidt grænseoverskridende for os danskere, men der var så meget andet så vi fik rigeligt med mad alligevel.

Efter frokost gik turen videre mod Shanghai, hvor vi kom til vores sidste og meget fine hotel på turen og efter en lille pause kørte vi gennem byen og så alle de enorme og fantastiske bygninger , og skulle finde en færge der sejlede rundt i havnen om aftenen, og efter en del ventetid kom vi med kl. 19.20 og man må sige at det bestemt var ventetiden være, det var utrolig flot at se alle de kæmpe store bygninger og tårne lyse op i mørket, en tur på næsten en time var slet ikke for meget, det var en fantastisk oplevelse.

Efter sejlturen kørte nogen til hotellet og andre gik en tur gennem byen , hvorefter vi tog en taxa til hotellet, vi kørte omkring 15 min. for kun 27cny . ( vi gav dog chaufføren 50 det havde han helt sikkert fortjent for den lange tur )endnu en dejlig dag.

Søndag d. 18 september

Vores sidste dag i Kina, startede med en tur i de små souvenir gader, der vrimler med ting og sager,  og de fleste af os fik da også købt lidt med hjem.

Efter frokost, som ikke var kinesisk, men  dejlig kylling hos KFC der lå lige ved hotellet, skulle vi to forskellige steder hen hvor  vi igen have fik  taget en masse billeder til H. C.  Andersen gruppen, og derfra kørte vi gennem byen til en stor plads, hvorfra man kunne se det store og meget smukke Perletårn, der skulle vi mødes med en buddhistisk munk og hans dansegruppe for at danse og have taget billeder.

Aftenen sluttede rigtig hyggeligt, med en dejlig afskedsmiddag , med både sang og dans, og da vores hotel ikke lå så langt væk, gik vi en hyggelig aftentur inden vi skulle pakke og i seng,

Yan Emperor Honored

dn7u4406_meitu_1

A grand ceremony organized by Zhuzou city`s  government and Hunan Federation of Returned Overseas Chinese was held yesterday in Yanling County, Zhuzhou City at the site of the tomb of the Yan Emperor, traditionally worshiped as an original ancestor by many in China.

The ceremony, aiming to pay homage on behalf of Chinese people at home and abroad. It was opened at 10:00 AM by Uyunqimg.

dn7u4423_meitu_2

The emperor, also known as Yandi and Shennong (meaning “divine farmer”), is thought to have lived about 5,000 years ago and is a figure parallel to the Yellow Emperor (Huangdi) in traditional beliefs. He was deified for contributing to teaching people agriculture.

dn7u4476_meitu_4

He is also credited with making fire with stones, inventing agricultural tools, weaving cloth, identifying hundreds of medicinal herbs and establishing marketplaces. He is believed to have died after eating a poisonous herb.

According to Records of the Historian by Sima Qian (145BC-87 ?) of the Han Dynasty, the Yan Emperor was a close kin of the Yellow Emperor. The Han Chinese later regarded both as joint ancestors and called themselves “descendants of the Yan and Yellow emperors,” a term which has been adopted by various ethnicities living in China.

dn7u4592_meitu_5

The Yan Emperor’s tomb is recorded in Yanling before the Han Dynasty (206 BC-AD220) and a temple was built in front of it in the Tang Dynasty (618-907).

 

dn7u4535_meitu_9 dn7u4648_meitu_6

The latest renovation of the mausoleum began in August 1986 and was completed in October 1988, and four ceremonies have since been held in 1993, 1994, 1997, 2000 at which public sacrifices were offered.

The Danish minister of Environment and Food, Esben Lunde Larsen, is hosting the international food summit “Better Food for More People”.

100 international political decision makers, industry leaders, experts and gastronomy frontrunners are invited by the Minister to elaborate and to come up with new solutions in order to ensure better food for more people in the future. .

Esben Lunde Larsen said “We have great expectations of the summit, which will result in a charter of recommendations for how the international community can do more to ensure better food for more people through gastronomy.”

The Minister for Environment and Food, Esben Lunde Larsen said.  “We have to improve public health across national borders as more and more people move from rural to urban areas and therefore move further away from where their food originates. In particular, we have to begin at an early stage by allowing children and young people opportunities to experience and work with food and to learn how good-quality produce is produced.”

COPENHAGEN, Aug. 19 (Xinhua) — Chinese Ambassador to Denmark Liu Biwei said here on Friday that the Belt and Road initiative has created opportunities for the whole world at a time of a sluggish global economy.

It is China’s key initiative to boost its all-around opening up against a new backdrop, but at the same time it also brings important opportunities for the overall revitalization of the European continent as well as the whole world, Liu said at the 8th Europe Forum of the Federation of Chinese Professional Association in Europe (FCPAE).

“The initiative is China’s idea, but the opportunities it has created belong to the world,” the Chinese ambassador said at the forum, which was held in the town of Hillerod, some 30 km north of the Danish capital of Copenhagen.

According to Deng Zhiguang, chairman of FCPAE, the purpose of this year’s forum is to explore new opportunities for Chinese-Europe cooperation under the Belt and Road framework and to attract investment.

The forum will also create a networking and knowledge exchanging platform for Danish and European company representatives and Chinese professionals working in Europe.

Liu said the forum is an excellent platform to discuss how to enhance mutually-beneficial and win-win cooperation between China and Europe by seizing a new opportunity brought by the initiative.

He thus called on all Chinese professionals and experts in Europe to continue to work together and share wisdom so as to bring China and European countries ever closer.

“Under the new circumstances, it is of great significance that we jointly build the belt and road, enhance China-Europe cooperation and achieve a win-win outcome,” the ambassador said.

Established in 2001 in Frankfurt, Germany, FCPAE is an independent and non-profit association of 52 Chinese professional associations in more than a dozen European countries with more than 20,000 members.

Parachuters will freestyle across the famous Copenhagen Lakes.
The famous Copenhagen Lakes in the middle of Denmark’s capital will once again host the professional freestyle parachuting competition, as the Swoop Challenge CPH Invitational gathers the world’s top athletes for a day of intense parachuting in a unique format.
20 of the top parachuting athletes in the world visit Denmark from 13 countries.
They jump out of helicopters in 1.500 meters. When arriving above the course, the swooper dives the canopy towards the lake’s surface to reach speeds of almost 150km/h and prior to contacting the water the swooper levels out the flight. The last stage of swooping consists of freestyle tricks on the water with high speeds before landing on a platform right in front of the spectators. There will be two rounds and five international judges will score each jump based on the turn towards the water, the actual freestyle swoop and the landing.

Reigning champion wins with record score in windy Copenhagen

Five-time champion Gary Hunt rediscovered his winning form in stunning style on a windy day in Copenhagen. The title holder, absent from the podium in his previous two events stretching back to last season, compiled a new record high-score from his four dives in front of 40,000 fans in the Danish capital. Wildcard Kris Kolanus produced the surprise performance of the weekend, stringing together quality dives from 28 metres and powering onto the podium in second-place, a personal best finish for the Pole. Mexican Jonathan Paredes followed up his victory in Texas with another top three finish and keeps an overall lead in the 2016 World Series.

Before Saturday’s competition it was the 26-year-old’s goal to stay on top in the overall rankings by perfectly executing his tried and trusted dives

Pumped with the confidence of a recent win, the World Series’ style master successfully accomplished this goal and once again was the diver who got awarded more 10s from the judges than anyone else in the competition. Thus perfectionist Paredes stays ahead of Hunt’s diving complexity in the standings after two of nine events in 2016.

Carl Nielsen 2015 under the patronage of her Majesty Queen Margrethe II

DN7U4477_meitu_3

In 2015, it is 150 years since Carl Nielsen was born in the small village Nørre-Lyndelse on the island of Funen. At the age of six, he was handed a violin and his career as Denmark’s greatest composer was launched.

Apart from six symphonies, Carl Nielsen wrote instrumental concerts, chamber music, works for the piano, operas, choral works and popular songs. Among his chamber music works, the string quartets and the wind quintet form the nucleus – the latter being a central part of the international core repertoire for wind quintets. The Carl Nielsen International Chamber Music Competition for String Quartets and Wind Quintets 2015 has therefore chosen to concentrate on Carl Nielsen’s string quartets and the wind quintet. The competition offers a number of cash prizes, including a first prize for the best string quartet and the best wind quintet.

Three major Danish cultural institutions, Danish Broadcasting Corporation, The Royal Library and The Royal Danish Academy of Music have together arranged the competition, wanting to celebrate Carl Nielsen while at the same time also propagating his music to an even wider circle and letting it be interpreted by the best young musicians from all over the world.

The competition will run from the 12th to the 18th October 2015 in Copenhagen. The first rounds will takplace at The Royal Danish Academy of Music, the second round in the Queen’s Hall at The Royal Library and the final round in Danish Broadcasting Corporation large concert hall in DR Byen.

The competition is open to all musicians under 35, and the panel of judges consists of leading chamber musicians from around the world with conductor Michael Schønwandt as chairman.

The competition will be broadcast by DR, and apart from cash prizes, the winners will receive offers of concerts at Danish music festivals and in Danish music series and societies.

DN7U667-04_meitu_9

The Dane is the reigning World and European champion on the 500 meters distance and on home ground on Bagsvaerd Lake, he was eager to win the World Cup gold medal.

Holten Poulsen took the lead from the beginning and on the first 300 meters only his club mate Orion Pilo, reigning European U-23 champion, could follow his speed. The high speed was too much for Pilo and he had to let go with 200 meters left of the race. On the other hand, Max Hoff set in his famous sprint. But Holten Poulsen held the lead all the way while Pilo came in as an acceptable number five.

Right after this, the Danish women’s K4, crewed with Henriette Engel Hansen, 361, Emma Aastrand Jørgensen, Maribo, Ida Villumsen, 361 and Amalie Thomsen, Limfjorden, was in the 500 meter final. They were hoping for a medal, but in a close race the Danish women had to settle with crossing the finish line as number four after Germany, Russia and China.

Precious Code Book handed back to China

DN7U0027-01_meitu_12

On May 11, the official day to celebrate the 65th Anniversary of the Establishment of Diplomatic Relations Between Denmark and China, the first Chinese Telegraphic Code Book ever to be applied was handed back to China. This is a story about how the Danish astronomer Hans Schjellerup contributed to the digitalization of the Chinese characters and in that way played an important role in modernizing one of the most important things in Chinese culture.

DN7U0027-02_meitu_13

How to morse Chinese characters?

The large code book only contains a few pages, but the content is still of great importance to the Chinese language even 144 years after the first production in 1871. When it was decided in 1864 to use the morse code system on the telegraph, the Danish business man C.F. Tietgen established The Great Northern Telegraph Company in order to connect east and west with telegraph cables. However, the question arised: How to morse Chinese characters?

DN7U0027-03

C.F. Tietgen contacted the astronomer Hans Schjellerup (1827-1887), who had also studied Chinese as a part of his astronomy research. The Danish scientist invented a system where each Chinese character is transcribed with four numbers from 0001 to 9999, which makes it possible to morse the transcribed character. This number system covers the most regular used Chinese characters, which is enough to read newspapers and definitely enough to send telegraph messages. On that time this technological breakthrough was just as important as the invention of the computer or the internet, for which reason the contribution from Schjellerup cannot be underestimated.

The relevance of the story in 2015

The story about the Danish-Chinese cooperation in communication remains relevant today. While The Great Northern Telegraph Company brought Danish telecommunication technology to China 145 years ago, and continues to do so in its new shape as the GN Store Nord A/S, Huawei Technologies Company, since 2007 established in Denmark, today brings Chinese telecommunication technology to Denmark.

During the event on May 11, one of the two original prints was Telecom Museum, located in the former Asian headquarters of The Great Northern Telegraph handed over to Fudan University by The Nordic Institute of Asian Studies, NIAS, who in June will pass it on to the Shanghai Company in Shanghai where the print will be kept as a precious historic artefact. The other original print is with the Danish National Archives. The event was organized by Copenhagen Business Confucius Institute and it highlighted the long term Danish-Chinese co-operation of which the Telegraph Code Book will remain a valuable symbol for years to come.

A heartfelt welcome to The Royal Danish Academy’s Annual Celebration Concert, that this year forms the culmination of a week, that for the Academy has been devoted to the composer Sofia Gubaidulina. First, four days together with a dozen of her solo and chamber music works and tonight, a work, this time of the greatest standing, the accordion concert Fachwerk, that we have just heard. We, at the Academy are honoured and very grateful that Sofia Gubaidulina has taken the time, in the middle of her busy life, to visit the Academy for the better part of a week. With her active and very attentive participation in rehearsals and concerts, she has given both students, teachers and our concert audience an unforgettable impression of the presence and deep spirituality that characterize her music and personality.

As can be seen from the programme notes she was born in Tatarstan and grew up and worked for many years in the former Soviet Union – with all that this implies. Not until the mid-eighties was she allowed to travel to Western Europe and not until then did more frequent performances of her music begin to appear in the West. Almost at that time – in 1985 – I had, as artistic co-leader of the then annual new music festival in Odense, Music Harvest, the opportunity to introduce new music from USSR. Apart from a major work of Shostakovich it was a broad presentation of the composers of the next generation, names like Alfred Schnittke, Edison Denisov, Valentin Silvestrov – and Sofia Gubaidulina. I remember the impact of this rather unknown but original and very intense music as extremely strong. It really touched the soul – and I think most people experienced it like that. In most of the world – and certainly also in Denmark the interest for these composers developed rapidly in the following years. And in Denmark not least in relation to Gubaidulina and her music it became a close-knit connection – with the Lerchenborg Music Days in 1994 as the first highlight and later culminating when she in 1999 received the Leonie Sonning Music Prize for (and I quote from the citation): ” a music that unites traditions and innovation and that via meditation, joy in colour, mysticism and expressiveness creates a symbiosis between the cultures of the East and West – a symbiosis that takes European music one step further. Sofia Gubaidulina’s musical expression is highly personal and at the same time so international that it speaks to people all over the world.” These were the words then and to-day – fifteen years later- this characterization still has an undiminished validity.

In relation to RDAM there have been various contacts, but first and foremost through Professor Geir Draugsvoll who as a young forward rushing accordionist met Gubaidulina 20 years ago at Lerchenborg, where a contact was formed that over the years has become stronger and stronger and in 2009 resulted in her composing this fantastic concert for him. Draugsvoll has since then recorded and toured with the work several places in Europe as soloist with among others the London Symphony Orchestra. A profound thank you to Geir for finally bringing Fachwerk to Denmark.

I shall now change the subject and at the same time allow myself to change from English to Danish.

A golden championships for Kenya in Copenhagen

Geoffrey Kipsang Kamworor and Gladys Cherono scoop the individual titles at the IAAF World Half-Marathon Championships in Copenhagen

DN7U1302-02_meitu_6 DN7U1302-01_meitu_5

© ROYAL PRESS

The anticipated head-to-head between reigning champion Zersenay Tadese, regarded by many as the greatest ever half-marathon runner, and 2010 champion Wilson Kiprop didn’t quite materialise at the IAAF World Half-Marathon Championships in Copenhagen on Saturday (29). Both runners finished adrift of the medals in a race won by Geoffrey Kipsang Kamworor from Kenya, whose bold front-running style is becoming his trademark.

Kipsang, who won the junior race at the 2011 IAAF World Cross Country Championships in gun-to-tape fashion, didn’t lead all the way today, but the 21-year-old made a pivotal move just after the 15km mark which dropped, among others, the five-time champion Tadese, who flirted with the lead in the early stages.

On the other hand, Kipsang’s move was a decisive one. He covered the 5km between 15-20km in under 14 minutes and this sustained pressure over the final quarter succeeded in bringing Kenya their tenth individual gold medal in the men’s race in a world-leading 59:07.

While disappointed to miss an individual medal of any description, Tadese, who finished fourth in 59:37, did come away with the title from the team race. Led by Samuel Tsegay, who overhauled Guye Adola from Ethiopia for silver in 59:20, Eritreans filled five of the top eight places to defeat Kenya and Ethiopia respectively for the team accolade.

In the women’s race, the Kenyans arrived as the strongest team on paper and their contingent of five runners made their presence felt from the very early stages.

No country has ever taken a clean sweep in this race before but their quintet led by world 10,000m silver medallist Gladys Cherono went one, or two, better by occupying the first five spots.

Cherono came through to take the title in 67:28 with Mercy Ngugi and Sally Kaptich comprising the podium with lifetime bests of 67:43 and 67:51 respectively.

Netsanet Gudeta from Ethiopia was the first non-Kenyan finisher in sixth in 68:45, just ahead of 39-year-old Christelle Daunay from France and 37-year-old Valeria Straneo from Italy in seventh and eighth respectively.

The next IAAF World Half-Marathon Championships are to be held in Cardiff in 2016 and the first British finisher was Alyson Dixon, who lowered her lifetime best to 70:37 for eighteenth.

Another mass participation race will be held in conjunction with the elite race in two years’ time. In a well-received innovation by the organisers, the mass runners in the Danish capital today were placed at the core of the championships as 30,000 runners from more than 70 nations streamed over the start-line right behind the elite men.

Jakob Larsen, the CEO of the Danish Athletics Federation, said the running boom in Denmark provided the initial impetus and added he hoped this format will be considered in other global championships in the future.

Among those running with the masses was former world 800m record-holder and event ambassador Wilson Kipketer, who clocked a very respectable 1:20:38 for the distance.

DN7U0177-02_meitu_8 DN7U0177-04_meitu_9

Master Jun Hong Lu, World Renowned Chinese Spiritual Leader, receives the ICD Award for Execptional Contribution and Peace Advocacy to the Global Community.He has been spoken efter   the ICD Award :“I am very pleased that ICD invited me to be part of this great conference this year. I also thank   the support from everyone here.

Thank ICD for presenting me with such a great honour. I feel very privileged. This award     will certainly inspire me to work harder,   and do everything I can to promote intercultural exchange and world peace.

In the meantime, I hope that, through this event, more people can understand the concepts of Buddhism better and welcome them with open arms, so that we can be closer to the dream of a more peaceful world.

The right way of thinking and true wisdom, are the fundamentals for our correct understanding of this world. They are also the fundamentals for providing fitting solutions to the problems we face today.However, the deviation from the correct way of thinking, and our lack of wisdom,   result   in   our incorrect understanding of the world we live in today. Because of this, we fail to deal with the problems we face in the world with intelligence and wisdom.

DN7U0177-10_meitu_12

That is why we find these long-lasting conflicts between people, and between nations and there does not seem to be functional solutions to them.

Moreover, in our modern society, failing to see through the true nature of things has resulted in harm to ourselves. Therefore, all kinds of mental disorders arise and they become a real problem in many parts of this World.The development of many problems depends on, to a great extent, how we view and understand them. Since we do not understand these issues fully, we actually contribute to the complex development of these problems.

In other words, if our limited understanding of a certain issue accounts for more than 50% of   the way we see it in our minds, the solution we provide to the issue can only be limited, or incomprehensive. Hence, all kinds of conflicts can take place.

Therefore, making our minds pure, and transforming the way we see things, can help us become more open-minded, and more selfless. We will be able to let go of our ego, and regard all people with compassion. If we can put the concepts of Buddhism into practice, then I believe,   this world will certainly be filled with love and peace.

I will do everything I can, to promote the unity of all kinds of faiths in the world with the concepts of Buddhism, and to promote intercultural exchange. In the meantime, I hope that, together, we can make this world a more peaceful place. “

2.Interview Master Jun hong Lu

At a.m. of Nov. 19, I interviewed Jun hong Lu in Berlin

I asked, “Master Lu, do you have any plan for promoting world peace?”

The director replied that: everyone desires peace, to do more contribution to the world peace is what each Buddhism learner shall do; actually, Buddhism is earning-less, and to learn Buddhism shall be to insist on compassion and use the compassion to forgive and settle wars and domestic and social conflicts. The prize I won will also encourage me to do more contribution to the world peace in future.

We all live in the global village and I hope everyone can do more contribution to the globe to get rid of hardship, natural disasters and even the man-made calamity. Peace is a good medicine which makes a person feel peaceful, so people in the world love peace; to let the people in the world to understand the compassion spiritual concept of the Buddhism can make the world to be more peaceful. I am very exciting and cherish the existence of the peace much more.Toda’s peace is actually created by thousands of people who have being contributed like the Director. We cannot enjoy the peace without the contribution of our predecessors; it is just like the South Africa’s revolutionist, Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela, who has won more than one hundred prizes in forty years, including the Nobel Peace Prize won in 1993. Mandela who had taken the post of the president for six years and had been executed for 27 years was the first South Africa’s president elected by people and is respected by people all over the world. He devoted himself to the abolishment of the racial segregation system and the realization of the racial reconciliation and reduced poverty and unfairness. He led the South Africa’s people for the racial reconciliation during the transitional period of promoting multi-racial democracy after he was discharged from prison. Since the racial segregation system was ended, Mandela was appraised even by the opponents in past. We only need peace rather than war, so it encourages me to do more contribution for the world peace.

In fact, the Buddhism considers that both a family and a country need a peaceful mind. We need to get rid of war rather than letting the war kill the human if we need a peaceful world. We shall remove the war and the annoyance in the man’s world by using the concept of peace. I hope the world to be in peace forever so as to protect our children and future generations and let them enjoy the happiness of peace. In the aspect of education, we shall let our children know how important the peace is for us since they are young. To carry forward the Chinese traditional essential culture, we shall know the culture and shall take the compassion of person to fuse the enmity in the world.

Master Lu said again, ‘At present, I am the alliance member of the international congress, the United Nations has a new constitutional law which has not been issued, and we shall promote the world peace better by using cultural peace. I hope people in future can bette4r accept the peace concept of religion. A person shall live in a peaceful society and shall have a right of owning the life in the peaceful society. In current world, the United Nations is enabled to promote the humanistic society and the cultural peace to the world, and generalize the international morality and ethics. I am invited to participate a cultural peace meeting held by the United Nations in New York and make a speech in the meeting. The Kill of Morocco also invites me to hold a meeting. Meanwhile, I am invited by some countries to make speech in their countries. I will promote this proposal to let more countries in the world to implement the cultural peace.’
Thank ICD for presenting me with such a great honour. I feel very privileged. This award     will certainly inspire me to work harder,   and do everything I can to promote intercultural exchange and world Peace

In the meantime, I hope that, through this event, more people can understand the concepts of Buddhism better and welcome them with open arms, so that we can be closer to the dream of a more peaceful world.

The right way of thinking and true wisdom, are the fundamentals for our correct understanding of this world. They are also the fundamentals for providing fitting solutions to the problems we face today.

However, the deviation from the correct way of thinking, and our lack of wisdom,   result   in   our incorrect understanding of the world we live in today. Because of this, we fail to deal with the problems we face in the world with intelligence and wisdom.

That is why we find these long-lasting conflicts between people, and between nations and there does not seem to be functional solutions to them.

Moreover, in our modern society, failing to see through the true nature of things has resulted in harm to ourselves. Therefore, all kinds of mental disorders arise and they become a real problem in many parts of this world.

 

The development of many problems depends on, to a great extent, how we view and understand them. Since we do not understand these issues fully, we actually contribute to the complex development of these problems.

In other words, if our limited understanding of a certain issue accounts for more than 50% of   the way we see it in our minds, the solution we provide to the issue can only be limited, or           incomprehensive. Hence, all kinds of conflicts can take place.

Therefore, making our minds pure, and transforming the way we see things, can help us become more open-minded, and more selfless. We will be able to let go of our ego, and regard all people with compassion. If we can put the concepts of Buddhism into practice, then I believe,   this world will certainly be filled with love and peace.

I will do everything I can, to promote the unity of all kinds of faiths in the world with the concepts of Buddhism, and to promote intercultural exchange. In the meantime, I hope that, together, we can make this world a more peaceful place.

On the evening of 19th, Hrant Bagratyan, the former Prime Minister of Armenia and I sit at the same table in the dinner party and we talked about the case that Lu Junhong was awarded ‘Global Community Special Contribution Peace Prize’. Hrant Bagratyan said to me, “Master Lu has made a great effort and contribution by leading the Oriental Station to carry forward and broadcast the Chinese Zen culture and maintain the world peace, and he is a true peace envoy.Professor,Zi jian Li , the unique Chinese Hong Kong representative participating in the ICD meeting (the vice president of Hong Kong Education College) made a speech called ‘Importance of Peace Education’ in the ICD cultural diplomacy on 20th, 2013. After his speech, we also talked about the Master Lu, the professor Li said, “Master Jun hong Lu has done his best to carry forward and broadcast the Buddhism and the Chinese traditional culture in more than 20 years. He held a Buddhist Fellowship which 15000 participated in summer of 2012 to carry forward the Chinese traditional culture to the world, enhance the studying of the Chinese Zen culture and promote peace……”

4,Held introduction meeting to answer Buddhists’ problems

On the evening of Nov. 17, a Buddhism Introduction Meeting was held in the ICD Meeting Hall of Berlin, the Master Jun hong Lu explained the life, showed the Buddhists at present how to get onto the right path, broadcasted the Chinese culture, promoted the soul health and blessed the world peace in the meeting.

The Master Jun hong Lu made a wonderful speech. He told us, ‘everyone has accumulated ignorant habits and evil creatures which are high as a mountain and deep as a sea since he was born, so that today’s padipata is always blocked by the ignorant habits and the interfered by the desire. The Master’s edification told us the origin of the ignorant habits, introduced us how to overcome the desire, remove the ignorance and improve the padipata realm by using the willingness and abstaining. The master said that the humane beings have inherent ignorant habits of aversion delusion. If one habit of one person is beyond a normal person, it indicates his habit is related to his performance of his previous life, and he needs to recompense in this life. If the ignorant habit cannot be removed by the virtue of the padipata, he will make mistakes in this life to apply nutrition to the seed of the habit and results a bigger bad result to make him degenerate. On the contrast, if the aversion delusion is removed through the postnatal padipata, no condition will be brought to the ignorance and the deep-rooted bad habits cannot be survived. The desire is an unbounded sea, and is also the origin of annoyance and pain of the life. We study the Buddhism is to understand the significance of the life.’

Doctor Dong hui Chen the new Danish Buddhist made a speech in the Buddhism Meeting. He introduced his chanting condition, ‘I studied Western medicine doctor in England, I studied Chinese medicine doctor in America in 2000, and I obtained the American doctorate in 2004. I predict human’s health by using the date of birth and the eight characters of a horoscope and can predict very well in Denmark. So far, I have let 98 infertile women to be pregnant again. I suffered from diabetes in 2003, I was badly ill and only ate tomatoes and black breads usually. I started chanting to beg the Bodhisattva to bless my health on Oct. 14, 2013, and I unexpectedly found a very surprising phenomenon that the diabetes was changed from 10.40 at the highest to 5.4 at the lowest (taking medicine). After chanting, I had a chance to help to treat patients and myself, I thought its my good fortune. Now, I would like to share with you and I hope everyone can try to chant.’

– I really did not expect it at all. He’s just got better each day but he’s still not got as good as I know he can be which is a little bit frustrating for me. He’s just an amazing horse and I know that there’s so much in there but I haven’t been able to show it off but hopefully I’ll get the opportunity next year inWEG (World Equestrian Games) to do that

I could feel that I would make it today. I went early to bed last night, slept very well and did not wake up before the alarm ringed. Then I braided his mane and from that moment on I felt like today is the day and it is going to be everything or nothing – and it became everything!

German Hannelore Brenner and Women of the World e. Walt Disney came second, followed by French José Letartre and Warina by Weltruhm.

Grade IV

The highest score of the day came in grade IV, where Sophie Wells and Valerius by Flemmingh took gold with 80,25%. He horse is still quite inexperienced, she told:

It’s only his second championship so it’s quite a big thing for him and it’s a big atmosphere but he listened to me all through the test and produced some of his best work. I was able to take some risks and he was in the right place to do that and it paid of.

Dutch Frank Hosmar and Alphaville by Sandreo took silver, and Danish Line Thorning Jørgensen took bronze with Di Caprio by De Niro.

European Commission member Dr. Marzenna Guz-Vetter expressed, Junhong Lu is a genuine world peace messenger.

It is known to all people with a basic knowledge of China that, the People’s Republic of China was founded on October 1, 1949. The Central People’s Government held the ceremony grandly in Beijing that day. Mao Zedong, Chairman of the Central People’s Government then, stepped on Tiananmen Gate Tower and announced in Xiangtan accent that the Central People’s Government of the People’s Republic of China was founded and Chinese people have stood up. This was a token for establishment of the People’s Republic of China. Thereafter, Chinese government set October 1 as the National Day.

It is also known to all that Zhuge Liang was the prime minister of the Shu-Han Dynasty during the Three Kingdoms period and also a renowned politician, a military strategist and an inventor in Chinese history. He was a military counselor of Liu Bei during the Three Kingdoms period.

1T7A9665-01_meitu_13

Empty Fort Strategy devised by Zhuge Liang is a household word in China. One day, Sima Yi led 150,000 soldiers to besiege the city where Zhuge Liang and his 5,000 soldiers stayed. In this circumstance, Zhuge Liang asked two servants to carry a Guqin and follow him to step on the gate tower. They burned incense and then played the Gunqin with ease and smile. Seeing this situation, Sima Yi commanded his army to retreat immediately. Later, Zhuge Liang usually won in wars and played a decisive role in enabling Sun-Liu Alliance and establishing the Shu-Han Dynasty.
