26-27 oct 2018: Kosmische Musik
A limitless, symphonic exploration of pioneering German synth music, focussing on Kraftwerk and Tangerine Dream, via inspirations such as Stockhausen, Rammstein and Einstürzende Neubauten. Special guest: neo-psychedelic Gothenburg band Fontän.
German synth music is centre stage with 70s bands like Kraftwerk and Tangerine Dream. Conductor and arranger Hans Ek has chosen music that he is extra passionate about, and has created an orchestral flow that expands into time and space. Kosmische Musik also captures the inspirations of the 50s – Stockhausen and French electronic music – and 90s industrial music with Rammstein and Einstürzende Neubauten at the forefront.
Participants: Gothenburg Symphony, Hans Ek conductor, Fontän, Gothenburg Vocal Ensemble
11-12 jan 2019: Sagas
Put on your sandals and sharpen your broadsword! The biggest pop culture experience of the year takes you on an enchanting journey into the lands of fantasy, where magic lives.
Sagas is a new and exciting concert production by the team behind game music concerts Score. Instead of just focussing on one medium, we’ll celebrate the whole fantasy genre as we go deep, performing both audience favourites and unexpected gems.
We’ll offer music from the big blockbusters of our time, such as Harry Potter, Narnia and The Lord of the Rings, but also from 1980s classics such as Conan the Barbarian, and The Dark Crystal. From the gaming world, we’ll take powerful themes from World of Warcraft, Skyrim, and Shadow of the Colossus, and we will of course also hear music from incredibly popular TV series Game of Thrones.
Participants: Gothenburg Symphony, Emil Eliasson conductor, Sabina Zweiacker soprano, Orvar Säfström presenter, Gotrhenburg Symphonic Choir

3-4 maj 2019: A tribute to Björk: Emotional Landscapes
Edda Magnason, Moto Boy and Gothenburg Symphony pay tribute to Björk’s mysterious universe. The concert contains songs written by Björk, one of our most important music makers today, as well as music that inspired her – a fascinating blend of the hypermodern and the ancient.
Björk is famous for her uncompromising and original music creation in a sound landscape between pop and art music, but also for her exciting collaborations with artists from different disciplines. At this concert parts of her great music production are interpreted by Edda Magnason, Moto Boy, Gothenburg Symphony and singers from Gothenburg Symphonic Choir.
The concert will also contain pieces of music creators that Björk has been inspired by, including Brian Eno, Kraftwerk and Karlheinz Stockhausen.
“Björk has her own enigmatic universe and its magnificence works incredibly well for symphony orchestra,” says Hans Ek who has written the new orchestra arrangements and also conducts the concert. “We will also weave in really old music. Björk’s music is a fascinating blend of the hypermodern and the ancient. ”
Participants: Gothenburg Symphony, Edda Magnason, Moto Boy, Gothenburg Symphonic Choir, Hans Ek conductor
