Göteborgs Konserthus Spring Organ

Magnificent, bright and wonderful tones in a unique meeting between organist Karin Nelson and singer and fiddler Lena Willemark.

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

Hear Karin Nelson perform Madeleine Isaksson’s Span, which was written for the Concert Hall’s new organ and premiered at its inauguration. She describes the programme as a collection of magnificent, bright and wonderful tones. A unique concert and a musical meeting between Karin and singer and fiddler Lena Willemark.

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!
