Olga Witte SOLO (p) - Olga Witte performs solo concerts. She composed the solo piano concert, Trilogy of Modern Science, in February 2023, and has performed it with great succes. The concert is based on three theories in modern physics; the special theory of relativity, the general theory of relativity and quantum mechanics. Olga Witte uses a lot of ideas from the three children's books by physicist Russell Stannard about the adventures of Uncle Albert and Gedanken, but she has read extensively about the subjects. The piece last around 40 minutes and is played both on the keys and inside the piano with strings, finger, sticks and other items. The music has caught the audience, both jazz connoisseurs and listeners with no interest in jazz. The music is somewhere between experimental jazz andcontemporary music, and as with most of the music, Olga Witte plays, she mixes elements of Balinese gamelan in the music. The music is about to be recorded and released as an album.

Slag & Stryg (Oda Dyrnes (cel), Niels Præstholm (b), Christian Windfeld (d), Thomas Eiler (d), Olga Witte (p)) An ensemble created by Olga Witte for the presentation of the honorary award, Gaffelprisen, she recieved in February 2023. The ensemble is playing music between experimental jazz, contemporary music with elements of Balinese gamelan and the surrounding cultural praxis. The music is composed by Olga Witte. At the premiere of the group they performed one longer piece of music, 'Dichotomies', and two shorter pieces, 'An Ode to Those Betwixt and Between', and 'To Those Who Crumble'. The music is created with different dichotomies in mind, some from Olga Witte's master's thesis about Balinese gamelan, egality and hierarchy.
