Event has already taken place

Gusto, stubbornness and playfulness: the first melody of Shostakovich’s Cello Concerto No. 1 stays with you, and you can’t help but love it.

Truls Mørk delivers with sharpness, but also goes below the surface in this elusive and sometimes melancholy musical spectacle. The conductor is Klaus Mäkelä – the latest young wonder on the Finnish conductor arena, now making his Swedish debut. He will lead the Symphony Orchestra in Rachmaninoff’s unabashedly romantic Symphony No. 2, a source of inspiration that has given new life to many a tired soul.

Introduction to the concert on April 28th at 6.30 p.m. with Karin Knutson, Gothenburg Symphony cellist.

Klaus Mäkelä replaces the previously announced conductor Andrés Orozco-Estrada, who has cancelled due to health reasons.
