Yellow Lounge with DJ Katrine Ring

DJ and journalist Katrine Ring mixes classical music and modern electronic music at Avenue Hotel

“It feels great to rattle and shake the crown jewels a little bit,” DJ and journalist Katrine Ring tells me as we make ourselves comfortable in the plush sofas in Avenue Hotel’s lounge bar.
She presents classical music in innovative and interesting ways at their Yellow Lounge-sessions every second Wednesday from 8 pm to 11 pm. On alternate Wednesdays the task is performed by her musical partner, DJ and journalist Peer Kaae.

Classical, Electronic and Film Music
“We introduce classical music in new and less pretentious ways,” says Katrine.
The record company Deutsche Grammofon introduced the Yellow Lounge-concept in year 2000.
They wanted to take classical music outside the daunting walls of the concert hall and introduce it to new audiences in alternative and relaxed surroundings. The music could be presented by DJs, live performers, VJs … or at times all three together. The concept spread to cities like Berlin, Vienna and Stockholm, and three years ago Universal Records launched Yellow Lounge in Copenhagen.

Live Classical Performers
“At times we have live music as well, for instance Andreas Birk, a classically trained bass-player, who’ll come by with some of his musical playmates,” Katrine tells me.
“They’ll play everything from tango to jazz to classic but on classical instruments. It’s terrific, as I have to relate to that, and it forces me to rethink how I play my records. I love it!”

The Atmosphere is Ever so Nice
“We’re lucky to have Avenue Hotel as our base. The hotel attracts a lot of the people whom you’d often classify as ‘the creative class’. They are 30 years+ and are going places with their lives,” Katrine explains.
“Typically the people who come by will be a mix of hotel guests – who often come down from their rooms and sit quietly with a book – and groups of people who come because they know I’m playing. The latter will chat and not hear much of the music but the atmosphere is ever so nice…”.

Come summer, the Yellow Lounge-sessions will move out into the hotel's patio

Yellow Lounge in the Summer Nights
Further to the popular lounge sessions every Wednesday night Katrine and Per are planning together with Avenue Hotel to take the Yellow Lounge-concept into the Danish summer nights on the hotel’s charming patio.
“We’ll have great music and nice barbecues,” says Katrine, “I think quite a few of the locals will be interested in joining us as well …”.
As a local myself I can only say I found the idea of lounging on Avenue Hotel’ wooden deck with the lush bamboo swaying in the summer breeze quite appealing. Actually so appealing that I snuck one of the hotel’s press photos in here to give you an idea of what is to come …

Gioacchino Failla, one of the greatest pioneers in the fields of biophysics and radiobiology, began his career at New York's Memorial Hospital in 1915.

One of the initial products of this research was the construction of a radon generator, the first in the United States. In 1921, Failla was the first to suggest that radiation doses be expressed as the amount of radiation energy absorbed and made the first dose estimates in radium therapy in terms of microcalories per cc of tissue. There are many ways to categorize wine, the most obvious being by color. Red wines clearly differ from whites. And of course there are differences in vintages, regions, winemaking styles, and oak-aging regimes. One way to separate wines is into one of three broad categories: (a) wines that age, (b) wines that do not, and a third sort of gray area in which a wine may or may not age well based on various situations. Another 5% are in Category B, and 5% in Category C..
