Event has already taken place. Colourful surprises with the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra, conductor Santtu-Matias Rouvali and clarinettist Kari Kriikku.
Fast-paced, masterful and full of surprising twists and turns – this is what awaits the audience when the concert begins with Kimmo Hakola’s Clarinet Concerto, with acclaimed clarinettist Kari Kriikku as the soloist.
After the intermission it is time for the premiere of a new work by composer Tobias Broström, known for his rhythmically powerful music, colourful orchestration and distinct sense of harmony. Here we get to see his first symphony performed for the first time, a premiere commissioned by the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra.
Broström is one of the most widely performed Swedish composers of his generation. His association-rich and almost cinematically narrative music is performed by orchestras all over the world, not just in Scandinavia but also by orchestras such as the BBC Philharmonic, the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra, the Konzerthausorchester Berlin, the Detroit Symphony Orchestra and many others.
This concert is led by Santtu-Matias Rouvali, Chief Conductor of the Gothenburg Symphony, so come prepared for a scintillating orchestral experience!
