Organ Inauguration: Romance and Experiments

Enjoy the live concert from our organ inauguration on October 17, available until October 24.

The French were experts of the romantic organ, both in terms of construction and composition. The Concert Hall’s new organ explores that expertise during this evening’s concert.

Enjoy a surge of sound by romantic Guilmant – who, incidentally, inspired Elfrida Andrée, organist of the Gothenburg Cathedral. Maurice Duruflé, a member of the next generation, then took the French tradition to another level with his skill and bravado. This work stands in stark contrast to that of experimental modernists Bengt Hambraeus and Hungarian György Ligeti, not to mention the premiere of a piping-hot new organ work.

Thanks to the collaboration between the real estate company Higab, the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra and Gothenburg’s international organ academy, Gothenburg now has a new world-class concert hall organ, built by Rieger Orgelbau in Austria. Secure your ticket to the magnificent premiere concerts and be among the first to experience the powerful organ sounds on site in the salon in Gothenburg Concert Hall!

Konserthusorgeln syns mellan lammellerna längst fram i konsertsalen, ovanför scenen. På scenen står en man och blickar upp mot orgeln.
