Concert length: 2 h incl. intermission Scene: Stenhammarsalen
230-300 SEK Student 115-150 SEK

Musicians from the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra perform chamber music written by other musicians, such as the violist Christian Woehr, the violinist/pianist Franz Schubert, and Pauline Hall, who was a pianist and one of the Nordic region’s most modern composers 100 years ago.

Christian Woehr is the American violist who discovered his talent for composition following heart surgery. Since then he has written 33 symphonies for strings, none of which are longer than 33 minutes, but above all else he has written music for his own chamber music ensemble within the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra. His older colleague Schubert wrote increasingly long music during his career. All of his music, like his octet for wind instruments, was based on what he and his colleagues wanted to play. No client paid for it.

The composing pianist and music critic Pauline Hall spent ten years in Paris and was in attendance at the scandal-ridden premiere of Stravinsky’s ballet The Rite of Spring. Influences from her years in France can be discerned in her music. Home in Norway she complained that people only wanted to hear ”idyll and tea water”.
