The National Orchestra of Sweden plays in the concert hall in Bozar in connection with Sweden's presidency of the EU, together with chief conductor Santtu-Matias Rouvali and violinist Johan Dalene.
Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra and chief conductor Santtu-Matias Rouvali will visit the concert hall in Bozar, Brussels on June 14 (preliminary concert time 19.30). On the programme is Jean Sibelius’ moving violin concerto with Swedish star soloist Johan Dalene.
The evening with the Swedish National Orchestra also offers music by Lili Boulanger and Richard Strauss.
– It is a joy to be able to show Sweden’s outstanding position in symphonic music. And also get to present some of Europe’s most beautiful musical treasures, says Sten Cranner, CEO of Gothenburg Symphony.
Sibelius’ violin concerto opens the door to unknown worlds, light-filled rooms and endless horizons, with a masterful orchestral treatment where wistful strings meet bitter woodwinds.
Soloist in tonight’s concert with the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra is the Swedish violinist Johan Dalene. At just 22 years of age, he has established himself as one of the world’s leading young violinists. In 2022 he was named Young Artist of the Year by Gramophone magazine and in 2019 he won the prestigious Carl Nielsen competition.The evening also features an orchestral masterpiece by child prodigy Lili Boulanger. She was only 24 years old but managed to amaze the whole world. That spring morning in Paris she dressed in tones was completed shortly before her death in 1918, while sister Nadia added the finer details to the dynamic.
In conclusion, we hear one of chief conductor Santtu-Matias Rouvali’s own favorite composers, Richard Strauss, who shows the orchestra’s full timbre. Ein Heldenleben is a true heroic tale.
