Göteborgs Konserthus A Sunday of meditative organ

Come inside the warm Concert Hall and be surrounded by the divine sounds of the mighty organ. Hans-Ola Ericsson plays music by Olivier Messiaen in this relaxed concert.

Concert length: 2 h no intermission Scene: Stora salen
400 SEK Student 200 SEK Young up to 29 200 SEK

Hear the masterpiece that was ultimately French composer Olivier Messiaen’s last major composition. The wide-ranging Livre du Saint-Sacrement is designed according to Catholic mysticism and a meditation on the mysteries of the Eucharist. This concert is an opportunity to find a sense of peace and truly allow the music to surround you. 

Olivier Messiaen is among the most important composers of twentieth-century classical music. He celebrated love and the light aspects of Christianity. His unique style comes from a powerful faith in God as well as a fascination with birdsong, which is often evident in his music. Balinese rhythms were another source of inspiration. 

Hans-Ola Ericsson is an organist with international credentials. He recorded the collected organ works of Olivier Messiaen in close collaboration with the composer himself before Messiaen passed away in 1992.
