Event has already taken place. The magnificent Concert Hall organ brings us together to the tones of Bach, Caccini and Bruckner, with organist Gunnar Idenstam.
With pieces by Francesca Caccini, Johann Sebastian Bach and Anton Bruckner, Gunnar Idenstam brings us together on All Saints’ Day supported by the full force of the Concert Hall organ.
Francesca Caccini’s beautiful songs were written in the 17th century, here interpreted by the incredible sounds of the organ. Gunnar Idenstam also plays Bach’s Fantasia and Fugue in G minor, which he has expanded and embroidered, as well as the Adagio movement from Bruckner’s eighth symphony transcribed for organ. It is incredibly beautiful music that suits reflection and meditation. The concert ends with his own improvisations dedicated to loved ones who have passed away.

The organ is called the ”Queen of Instruments”, and for good reason: no other acoustic instrument is as varied in sound and dynamics, from the very weakest, solitary note to massive chords that cause vibrations in the floor and walls, which is guaranteed to happen in Stora Salen, the main auditorium in Gothenburg Concert Hall, when the sound from the more than 9,000 organ pipes fills the room! The instrument is so large that some of the organ pipes have been installed beneath the audience in the auditorium – when you sit on the parquet you can feel the vibrations from the bass pipes!
