Pop-up concert at Frölunda Torg with Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra and Gothenburg's own star violinist Ava Bahari! Free entrance.
Join us for a pop-up concert with the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra at Frölunda Torg! When late summer sigh happily, the Gothenburg Symphony offers music with Gothenburg’s own star violinist Ava Bahari. In addition, Dvorák’s eighth symphony, a life-affirming flow of lyrical sounds where strings and brass are allowed to shine.
The concert begins with one of the most beautiful Swedish pieces ever written, the adagio from Vaknatten (“the waking night”) by Karl-Birger Blomdahl. A neoclassical dream that floats upwards under the high vault of the Johanneberg church. Vaknatten was written as theater music in 1945 by Blomdahl from Småland, who would later approach significantly more modern tones. He is most known for his opera version of Aniara.
Ava Bahari, 26, made her debut as a soloist with the Gothenburg Symphony with noise and bang last winter when she took on Schoenberg’s difficult violin concerto. “Arguably, this is a game that carries Ava Bahari into the world,” GP wrote. Now she is booked on stages around Europe and alternates her guest performances with violin studies in Berlin. This concert she plays a real show number, Introduction and Rondo Capriccioso by the Frenchman Camille Saint-Saëns.
Finally, conductor Anton Holmer leads the orchestra in swirling Czech music in Antonin Dvorak’s Eighth Symphony. It is happy smiling music and a celebration of life and the gifts of nature. One of Dvorák’s most played symphonies, along with the well-known 9th.
