The Charles Ives tribute "Universe, Incomplete" at the Ruhrtriennale was celebrated as a musical marvel, as a musical great joy: "The Nordic heroine Tora Augestad sings entrancing" (SZ), for the NZZ she is even "an apparition" (NZZ). Tora Augestad's recording of Ives' "The Unanswered Question" and "Five Songs" will be released in November 2018, combined with Weill's "Seven Deadly Sins" and Markus Paus' composition of Dorothy Parker's "Hate Songs". Markus Paus is already writing the next work for the mezzo-soprano. The world premiere is planned at the beginning of the new year. In 2019, the mezzo-soprano will also perform the world premiere of Philippe Manoury's Lab.Oratorium with the Gürzenich Orchestra Cologne under the baton of François-Xavier Roth. It will be directed by Nicolas Stemann at the Kölner Philharmonie, the Elbphilharmonie Hamburg and the Philharmonie de Paris. In addition, she appears on stage with the Stavanger Symphony Orchestra, the Oslo Sinfonietta and the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra.
