The Norwegian Chamber Orchestra is known for its empathetic performances, now with the charismatic Pekka Kuusisto as artistic director of the orchestra.
We have the pleasure of once again hosting the Norwegian Chamber Orchestra, known for its soulful performances. Charismatic violinist Pekka Kuusisto is a dear guest at Gothenburg’s Konserthus and artistic director of the orchestra.
The Norwegian Chamber Orchestra has established itself as one of the leading chamber orchestras on the international music scene. They are known for their refined sound and innovative concert formats. Frequently, the audience is treated to surprises, such as the ensemble playing an entire repertoire by heart. NCO consists of Norway’s best instrumentalists, including 21 core members who work together as a collective.
Pekka Kuusisto is both a conductor and one of the Nordic region’s young violin stars. He has taken audiences by storm, not least in his performance at the BBC Proms. He is also active as a conductor and took over in 2021 as artistic director of the Norwegian Chamber Orchestra. The collaboration has resulted, among other things, in a recording of works by Philip Glass and Nico Muhly.
This evening we get to hear the Norwegian Chamber Orchestra create magic from Mozart’s fantastic music. Experience the magnificent Sinfonia contertante, a half-hour long gem in the best classical style where solos from violin and viola meet in a flirtatious dance.
In the suite from The Magic Flute, we hear beloved numbers from Mozart’s famous opera. Completely without song and words, the suite becomes a new musical story that never ceases to captivate us.
Take a seat in the Great Hall one hour before the concert begins and learn more about the music you will soon experience! You will get the stories behind the music, knowledge of the composers and own reflections about the classical pieces. The introduction last for about 30 minutes, it is free and free seating in the hall. Warm welcome!
