Monday at last – Day 2
The Monday At Last concert series celebrates 10 years with a jam-packed chamber music festival: Monday All Week!
Wednesday 4 April 2018 18.00Ends approximately 20.00
Monday All Week is exactly what it sounds like: Monday At Last concerts every day, with tons of guests. In this concert words are in focus.
In this concert we will hear music by the British composer Rebecca Clarke, and pianist Bengt Forsberg presents music by the Russian romantic Nikolai Medtner.
After the interval, Olivia Bergdahl's Poetry Orchestra enters the stage. Olivia Bergdahl became something of a Swedish performance poetry prodigy early on, when she won the Swedish Poetry Slam Championship at age 17 in 2007, and debuted with the poetry collection Demo that same year. Since then, she has written the critically acclaimed novel Efter Ekot (After the Echo), released the album Eldorado, and founded the poetry and string quartet group Olivia’s Poetry Orchestra, which will be performing its own music to Olivia's poetry.
