Genre: Chamber music

Soup Concert

Soup concert with a world premiere.

Lili Boulanger (1893–1918) was a musical genius who sadly passed away far too young. She and her sister Nadia (1887-1979) were two colourful, vibrant women of French music, and made an enormous impact on the modern music scene. Both were featured at the 2015 Composer Festival here at Konserthuset. Now, once again, we will have the opportunity to hear some of Lili Boulanger’s exquisite chamber music, including the playful and sharply contoured D’un matin de printemps, and the melancholy of Nocturne.

Stefan Lindgren has been the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra’s pianist since 2007. He is also a composer and has written numerous chamber music pieces, including a symphony and several piano concertos. Here, we will experience something exclusive: the premiere performance of his Sonata for Alto Saxophone and Piano.

The American actress Jean Harlow was one of the great stars of the 1930s; she played opposite actors like James Cagney and Clark Gable. Frenchman Charles Koechlin was fascinated by her, and when she died in 1937, he honoured her with a beautifully swaying epitaph.

Performers in this concert include Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra flute player Anna Riikonen; saxophone player and professor at the Royal College of Music in Stockholm Christer Johnsson; as well as the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra’s pianist Stefan Lindgren.

Menu: Roasted butternut squash soup with white beans and orange, served topped with seeds and feta.
