Learn more about classical music in relaxed lectures where you get the stories behind the music, knowledge of the composers and reflections from stage and salon in a nice mix. Each occasion a conductor or a musician from the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra gives you a unique insight into the details behind the music. Coffee and sandwich are included in the price.

There are many who have portrayed spirituality through music. The superhuman sounds through the Ascension of the Messiah, Stravinsky’s hymns and the Catholic Bruckner’s huge symphonic tributes to God, but is also heard in Hildegard of Bingen’s music-dramatic conversations between the heavenly and the diabolical, echoes from the surprisingly lively musical life of Italian monasteries in the 17th century and reaches us via Ida Moberg’s anthroposophical setting of the Buddhist nirvana. This Tuesday we follow music’s path to spiritual worlds. Lecturer is Magdalena Fronczak, producer at the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra. Among other things, she is behind the Grammis-winning album Aulin, Moberg, Andrée: Orchestral Works and is also a writer and blogger with a focus on female composers in history.


Get to know the composers.
