Händel/Halvorsen: Passacaglia

Add to calendar
Much classical music has its roots in folk music and folk dances. In the Baroque, composers such as Bach and Handel captured the rhythms of different dances with delight.

One of them was the passacaglia, a Spanish street dance so popular it was embraced by the courts of Europe. The name comes from passacale, “walk”, and to perform Halvorsen’s dazzling version of Handel’s Passacaglia in the Gothenburg Concert Hall’s promenade is a perfect idea. Here performed with delicacy and energy by the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra’s concertmaster Sara Trobäck and the orchestra’s solo cellist Claes Gunnarsson.
