"Extremely talented violinist who possesses wonderful temperament and unfailing musical sense" - Nathan Milstein
"Inside my head the music has colors, shapes, textures and many more images:
Imagine, now you can see it too ..."
IMAGE IN MY MUSIC
A MULTI MEDIA, MULTI DIMENSIONAL SHOW
Manyfold Prize and Award winning Norwegian renaissance artist RAGIN's vision has since day one been music steeped in colors and multiple dimensions, which now has come to fruition in her Gesamtkunstwerk IMAGE IN MY MUSIC at its world premiere at Kilden Performing Arts Center – kilden.com – in Kristiansand, Norway in October 2014, to enthusiastic, standing ovations. As a concert violinist and consummate artist, she has always "seen" the music she performs, in colors, shapes, images, dark, light, solid, ethereal, high, low, near, far, hard and soft etc., and now takes the audience with her inside her inner world while she performs on her Stradivarius from 1689, immersed in large scale video projections. Her own artwork has been combined with photography and film, which she produced together with Virtual Theater Designer Joachim Schamberger.
Ragin has appeared in major halls all over Europe and the United States, including New York, London and Paris, where she simultaneously had an art exhibit. She has performed violin concertos, including ones written for, dedicated to and premiered by her, by such renowned Norwegian composers as Johan Kvandal, Ragnar Søderlind, Knut Nystedt and more, with all the major orchestras in Norway, as well as orchestras like the Royal Philharmonic in London.
