“I’m a guy who likes to have a lot to do, in different fields. As the Bergen International Festival is Norway’s most exciting festival, and also has an excellent international reputation, it was crucial for me to say yes. That my own reputation is different than some might associate with such a job, so be it. It would regardless have been cowardly to say no.” (Source: Vårtland)
