Göteborgs Konserthus Power play with organ and brass

Hear the proud brass instruments of the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra measure up to the full lung capacity of the organ. An expressive concert about the battle between good and evil.

Concert length: 2 h incl. intermission Scene: Stora salen
400 SEK Student 200 SEK Young up to 29 200 SEK

Hear the proud brass instruments of the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra measure up to the full lung capacity of the organ. This is an evening of bellows and brass. Through charged music, a battle plays out between good and evil, for example in Petr Eben’s Sunday Music and the powerful Poème Heroïque, written by Dupré in memory of World War I. 

This evening’s organist is Magnus Kjellson, artistic director of the acclaimed Gothenburg Baroque ensemble and according to the magazine Opus, a “passionate enthusiast without parallel”.

We also hear the reverberating sounds of Richard Strauss and Maurice Duruflé, alongside a spectacular trumpet trio by Sofia Gubaidulina. The triumphant finish is the inventive Fuga Solemnis by organ composer Franz Schmidt. He followed in the footsteps of his teacher Anton Bruckner and composed in his final major work a shimmering prism for brass, percussion and organ. 

Experience an evening of expressive music that opens the door to new worlds.
