Danny Gordon with the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Wind Quintet.

The Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Wind Quintet is a successor to the legendary Philharmonic Wind Quintet, which had enormous global success in the 1960s and 70s. 

In 2001, five solo wind musicians from the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra reinstated the ensemble. The ensemble is now considered among the best in the country and appeared in a tribute concert to the winner of the 2004 Polar Music Prize, György Ligeti, and in conjunction with the Composer Festival at Konserthuset. They have premiered works by composers such as Katarina Leyman and Christian Lindberg. In 2016, Radio France named the Wind Quintet’s album of music by Francis Poulenc the classical album of the month.

The album cover was designed by artist, songwriter, comedian and scriptwriter Danny Gordon. He began his path as a visual artist and has had several exhibitions throughout the country. He has also written and performed one-man shows at Judiska Teatern, Mosebacke and Södra Teatern.

At this concert, Danny Gordon performs his own music with the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Wind Quintet; we will also hear music by Arvo Pärt, Franz Schubert and more.

Menu: Spinach and wild garlic soup, served with shredded smoked salmon and crème fraîche.
