Event has already taken place. The Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra, David Afkham conductor, Vilde Frang violin
Our friends from Stockholm travel south for their popular annual guest performance, this time featuring Norwegian violin player Vilde Frang as the star soloist. Conductor is David Afkham, who has received great ovations on many occasions in Gothenburg.
Vilde Frang, the Stockholm orchestra’s Artist in Residence 2021-2022, is the soloist in Alban Berg’s expressively charged violin concerto, dedicated to Alma Mahler’s daughter Manon Gropius, who was very close to Alban Berg and his wife Helene. When she died of polio at age 18, Berg composed this concerto and gave it the sub-heading: “In memory of an angel”.
Outi Tarkiainen’s newly written The Ring of Fire and Love not only alludes to the forces of nature and love, but is also about a woman who gives birth to a child, “this earth-shattering, creative, cataclysmic moment they travel through together”.
Robert Schumann has been called the most romantic of all Romantic composers. He was an emotional person whose life alternated between the greatest joy and the darkest sorrow, between manic creativity and the deepest depression. We hear this reflected in his inventive and powerfully expressive Symphony No. 4.
