Swedish Chamber Orchestra
Another edition of the project Bach Reborn – contemporary composers reflecting on the music of Bach. This time with new pieces by Brett Dean and Olga Neuwirth!
Saturday 10 February 2018 15.00Ends approximately 16.45
The Swedish Chamber Orchestra aims to always push the limits of what is possible. With Örebro as its base, the entire world is its arena, and the ensemble tours with a broad repertoire spanning from Baroque to new compositions.
The collaboration with internationally coveted conductor Thomas Dausgaard began in 1997, two years after the orchestra formed. They began by recording all of Beethoven’s orchestral works together, an intense and challenging process that led to the orchestra’s unique sound and sense of community.
Here, the Swedish Chamber Orchestra guest-performs at Konserthuset in a programme reflecting the breadth of the orchestra. The concert comprises yet another chapter of the project “Bach Reborn”. Two of Johann Sebastian Bach’s Brandenburg Concertos are framed by contemporary music. Austrian Olga Neuwirth, a composer who has generated buzz with her cutting edge musical creations, is represented with “Aello – Ballet Mécanomorphe”.
In addition, we will hear a newly composed piece by Australian composer, violist and conductor Brett Dean, who was featured at Konserthuset’s Composer Festival in 2011. He has been artist-in-residence at the Sydney Symphony Orchestra since 2016, both as a conductor and a musician, and also participates as a soloist in this concert.
