I tillegg har en rekke utøvere bidratt med fortolkninger og som samtalepartnere underveis. Seminaret torsdag vil gi innblikk i bredden av dette arbeidet.

På fredag går visningen av filmen med Valens fiolinkonsert (1950) og panelsamtalen inn i Ultimafestivalenss åpne dag på sentralen. Elise Båtnes er solist når Oslo-Filharmonien fremfører fiolinkonserten samme kveld.
