Patrik Swedrup has been the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra’s second concertmaster since spring 2004. Johannes Lörstad has been section leader of the second violins since 2005. Arne Stenlund, viola, has been a member of the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra since 1985 and cellist Klas Gagge has been a member since 1987. These four incredibly experienced Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra string musicians form a string quartet and tackle a thrilling programme in this performance.
Beethoven’s intense String Quartet No. 11 is often called the Serioso, and is the last of the quartets of his middle period, before he transitioned to the experimental late quartets. Hugo Wolf is considered among the greatest and most important song composers, together with Franz Schubert and Robert Schumann, but he also composed much more. Here, we will enjoy his best and most famous instrumental piece: Italian Serenade.
Swedish composer Madeleine Isaksson is active internationally and has lived just outside Paris since the 1990s. Her Stråkvåg (“String Wave”) from 1990 is a musical “microdrama” in which short gestures and rhythmic repetitions, together with soft melodic fragments form a wave-like foundation.
Menu: Crème vichyssoise with potatoes and leek, topped with herbed cottage cheese.
