Göteborgs Symfoniker

Polar Star Prize 2021 | Harald Edin

Of course, there will be stormy Italian emotions in this piece by film music master Nino Rota, as well as sweet-sounding melodies.

He could change the mood in an instant, sensitively or dramatically, and listeners just have to fasten their seat belts and ride along the thrilling musical journey. The main part is played by the double bass which displays its entire register on the stage, a challenge that Harald Edin takes on with conviction in this performance at the final of the Polar Star Prize 2021. At the piano: Peter Friis Johansson.

The Polar Star Prize is arranged by the municipality of Vänersborg in collaboration with the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra and several local, regional and national partners.
