A Coda for Orchestra

A Coda for Orchestra

A Coda for Orchestra is a mockumentary series documenting the career musicians in NRK’s Broadcasting Orchestra (KORK), the acclaimed in-house orchestra of Norway’s public broadcaster.

Through the eyes of a handful of musicians played by two of Norway’s biggest comedians, the series follows the orchestra’s ups and downs and impending cancellation.

It is a story about work and friendship, love and duty, dedication, identity – and the eternal struggle between art and craftmanship, high and low culture,and finally being allowed to bang your timpani.
