Göteborgs Konserthus Romantic Rarities

A programme rich in variety as the magnificent Concert Hall organ brings Grande Pièce Symphonique to life, with organist Mikael Wahlin at the keys.

Concert length: 1 h Scene: Stora salen
370-530 SEK Student 185-265 SEK

With a varied programme built around César Franck’s Grande Pièce Symphonique, Mikael Wahlin provides us with an organ concert filled with romantic rarities.

The organ is called the ”Queen of Instruments”, and for good reason: no other acoustic instrument is as varied in sound and dynamics, from the very weakest, solitary note to massive chords that cause vibrations in the floor and walls, which is guaranteed to happen in Stora Salen, the main auditorium in Gothenburg Concert Hall, when the sound from the more than 9,000 organ pipes fills the room! The instrument is so large that some of the organ pipes have been installed beneath the audience in the auditorium – when you sit on the parquet you can feel the vibrations from the bass pipes!
