Stockholm Composer Weekend: Andrea Tarrodi

Whose music will “take your breath away”.

Composer Weekend 2018 is dedicated to Andrea Tarrodi, whose music will “take your breath away”, as Dagens Nyheter wrote. Qualities often mentioned include her music’s colourful richness and peculiar play of light. She has garnered significant attention in recent years, and her work has been performed several times before at Konserthuset.

The festival opening includes no less than two premiere performances: Wildwoods for Orchestra, and the piano concerto Stellar Clouds. The soloist will be Swedish pianist Peter Friis Johansson, who has excelled in multiple international competitions.

Konserthuset has been arranging an annual Composer Weekend since 2006. The event is a complement to autumn’s Composer Weekend and focuses primarily on Swedish composers.
