Event has already taken place. Organist and professor David Higgs at a unique guest performance in Gothenburg to give a concert on the new, fantastic concert hall organ.
David Higgs tours the world as a virtuoso, is a poster name at festivals and a respected judge at international organ competitions. In the United States, he is also known for his annual holiday concerts at the Davies Symphony Hall in San Francisco and the Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles. For several years, he has been the director of the organ department at the historic Eastman School of Music in Rochester, New York.
Welcome to a free introduction with med Hans Davidsson and David Higgs one hour before the concert starts, in the Great Hall kl 17.00-17.30. The introduction is in English.
The organ is called “the queen of instruments” and for a good reason: no other acoustic instrument is so varied in sound and dynamics, from the weakest, solitary tone to massive chords that make it vibrate in floors and walls. It will for sure do so in the Great Hall in Gothenburg Concert Hall when the sound from the over 9000 organ pipes fills the room.
All this thanks to the cooperation between the real estate company Higab, Göteborg international organ academy, and Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra which makes it possible for us to finally experience a world-class concert hall organ, built by Rieger Orgelbau in Austria. The instrument is so big that some of the organ pipes have been built in under the audience in the salon – when you sit on the parquet you feel the vibrations from the bass pipes!
Here you will find all the necessary information that you need to know about before your magical visit in the Concert Hall.
Invite yourself or someone you like to an experience for all the senses. Welcome to visit the Concert Hall's restaurant or one of our foyer bars.
