Miracles and Masterpieces

Outstanding Frank Peter Zimmermann is the soloist and Ryan Bancroft conducts a forgotten masterpiece.

Frank Peter Zimmermann is widely acclaimed for his beautifully resonant violin-playing and he is considered one of the foremost violin soloists of our time. He has taken the stage at Konserthuset Stockholm many times before and is a very popular guest. Now we hear him in Stravinsky’s neoclassical and playfully melodic Violin Concerto, in which each movement begins with a sharp chord as if to say: Listen up – it’s starting now!

French composer Florent Schmitt studied at the conservatory in Paris under Jules Massenet and Gabriel Fauré, and was friends with Ravel and Erik Satie. While he gladly took away impressions from everything he came into contact with, his music is very French. The sonically shimmering and La Belle Époque-infused La Tragédie de Salomé was originally intended as a ballet. It was an immediate success.

The opening piece is Finnish Sebastian Hilli’s striking Miracle, and the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra will be led by its chief conductor designate, award-winning American Ryan Bancroft. “A dancing conductor bodes well for the musicians,” wrote newspaper SvD after the 2021 Nobel Prize Concert.
