Genre: Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra

Mozart and Stravinsky

Ryan Bancroft conducts The Firebird and Sofie Asplund sings arias. Executive and Artistic Director Stefan Forsberg hosts and introduces the concert.

Ryan Bancroft completing his first season as Chief Conductor of the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra. Stravinsky’s The Firebird is close to his heart – and we hear not the often-played suite, but the complete ballet music from 1910. “It’s an enormous orchestra and the best version,” says Bancroft. 

It is possible that Lili Boulanger heard at least one of the famous Stravinsky ballets, all of which premiered in her home city of Paris in the early twentieth century. First, we hear Lili Boulanger’s D’un matin de printemps – one of the last works this young genius composed before passing away much too young in 1918, at just 24 years old. Despite the circumstances, this is bright music with light and playful steps.  

Åland-born soprano Sofie Asplund is doubly present in Konserthuset this season: both in a lied concert and on this occasion, when she sings arias by Mozart. Asplund has garnered a great deal of acclaim in recent years and has been praised for several of her interpretations of roles on Sweden’s opera stages.
