Göteborgs Konserthus One-hit wonders

Learn more about classical music in the Classical Curiosities lecture series. This time the spotlight falls on the poor people who became famous for just one piece, such as Chaminade, Pachelbel or von Paradis. Lecturer: Magdalena Fronczak.

Concert length: 2 h incl. intermission Scene: Stenhammarsalen
220-280 SEK

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. Coffee and sandwich are included in the price.

This Tuesday, for once, the spotlight falls on those poor souls who became known for only one piece of music. Are you familiar with the names Cécile Chaminade and Maria Theresia von Paradis? Not? Maybe Pachelbel, Fibich or Raff? No? But you’ve probably heard their music! 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.
