Göteborgs Konserthus Passacaglia

Captivating organ effects when music by Bach meets works by Frank Martin, among others, with organist Bine Bryndorf on the irresistible Concert Hall organ.

Concert length: 1 h Scene: Stora salen
370-530 SEK Student 185-265 SEK

The aim of the Passacaglia’s ostinato bass is to put the listener in a trance when the end of each loop leads into the next beginning. Bine Bryndorf’s concert rests on this captivating effect, where the music of Johann Sebastian Bach meets works by Frank Martin, among others.

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!
