Prize-Winning cellist Amalie Stalheim

Broström’s Cello Concerto and Tchaikovsky’s Winter Dreams.

Cellist Amalie Stalheim won the Soloist Prize in 2018. The contest is held every other year by the Royal Swedish Academy of Music and is Sweden’s foremost soloist competition.

The jury’s statement: “With a self-evident stage presence and compellingly mature musical interpretations in interplay with the conductor and orchestra, Amalie Stalheim – in the face of extremely stiff competition – is a worthy Soloist Prize winner. Her technical brilliance goes hand in hand with sensitivity and personal expressiveness. She conveys a musicality which we hope will gild the world’s concert halls for many years to come and inspire new generations of young musicians.”

At this concert, we will hear Amalie Stalheim’s extraordinary talent in Tobias Broström’s rhythmically concentrated and melodically beautiful cello concerto, which has been performed many times since its world premiere in 2011.

Russian conductor Stanislav Kochanovsky and the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra also offer Russian music: Borodin’s passionate and lovingly romantic Polovtsian Dances and Tchaikovsky’s magnificent first symphony, Winter Dreams.

Konserthuset Play – Tchaikovsky Symphony No. 6!
