HK Gruber


HK GRUBER

The Stockholm International Composer Festival 2017 focus on the composer, singer and conductor HK Gruber; 16-24 November.

Like no one else, HK Gruber compose music in a humorous way, while still being in the deepest sense.

Since 1986, the annual Composer Festival has focused on a selection of contemporary composers who we believe posterity will regard as highly as we value Beethoven, Brahms and other giants. Who will be the festival’s 2017 composer?

With a rich offering of various related activities during the festivals, such as the chance to meet composers, film screenings or exhibitions, we provide visitors with the opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of the composer’s artistry. The Composer Festival was founded in 1986 and quickly established itself as an essential element of both Swedish and international music scenes. 

The festival takes place in autumn 2017. The festival concerts are published in conjunction with the 2017/2018 season release.

How it all started

It was born as a unique and controversial idea in the mid-1980s, but still survives today and is among the true flagship events for Konserthuset and the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra.
