Polar Star Prize 2021 | Tekla Nilsson
The music reflected the street life; was light-hearted, entertaining and cheeky – seriousness was completely out of fashion. Poulenc’s Clarinet Sonata brings all this to life in its unadulterated and playful joy. But there is also a weightless melancholy, and quiet contemplation of how wonderful life really is. The music contains a wealth of expressions, which last year’s winner of the Polar Star Prize, Tekla Nilsson, fully embraces at this guest performance with pianist 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.
