Welcome to Nordiska Musikgymnasiet’s spring concert, which will present a selection of vocal and instrumental musical experiences in various chamber music constellations.
Music for string orchestra and choir will also be presented.
Nordiska Musikgymnasiet is a private upper secondary school with an emphasis on classical music. In its 20 years in existence, it has established itself as one of Sweden’s best upper secondary music schools. Young rising stars such as cellist Hanna Dahlkvist, conductor Emil Eliasson, organist Joakim Andersson, soprano Annie Ternström, violinist Johan Dalene, pianist Sebastian Iivonen and Konserthuset’s Summer Musicians Trio Conti all attended upper secondary school here.
In addition to a complete upper secondary education, the school provides professional classical music training. Nordiska Musikgymnasiet accepts students from all over Sweden as well as from the Nordic region and the rest of Europe. Students are admitted for all acoustic instruments, singing, composition and conducting.

An easy way for curious 10–13-year-olds to learn more about the symphony orchestra.
How does an orchestra work? What instruments are included? What do notation and scores look like? What does the conductor do?
In conjunction with the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic's hour-long concerts on some Wednesdays, one of Konserthuset’s music guides or a musician from the orchestra will present an introduction of the orchestra and the music to be played at the evening’s concert.
The introduction is held in Swedish. A vegetarian sandwich and a drink are included.
Remember to book a ticket separately to the concert for the same evening, which begins at 18.00. Youth tickets are available from SEK 55 (choir balcony).
The Hong Kong-born conductor debuts with the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra.Wednesday 29 May 2019 18.00
The Hong Kong-born conductor debuts with the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra.
Since 2016, Elim Chan has been chief conductor of Norrlandsoperan and this is her debut with the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra. She grew up in Hong Kong and has previously served as assistant conductor of the London Symphony Orchestra.
We will hear British composer Anna Clyne’s dancing and darkly oppressive This Midnight Hour, inspired by the poetry of Spanish Juan Ramón Jiménez and French Charles Baudelaire, whose poetry collection Les fleurs du mal (The Flowers of Evil) is one of the most significant and influential collections of poetry ever published. Some parts were censored in French editions well into the twentieth century.
There is also a story behind Pyotr Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 4, which is about his feelings after a short and catastrophic marriage to Antonina Miliukova. To the wealthy Nadezhda von Meck, who eventually became one of his patrons, he wrote: “The introduction has a theme in the brass section that recurs several times throughout the symphony. It is the core, the primary thought of the entire symphony. Like an annihilating power standing in the way of happiness.” Still, joy is not lost. Of the finale, he writes that there is still happiness, simple, naive happiness. “Deriving happiness from others allows one to live longer.” This is also reflected in the effervescent and exhilarated music.
