The Philharmonic Up Close is a subscription in which we get to encounter musicians from the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra in more intimate concerts. Here, the orchestra’s alternate solo clarinetist Johan Fransén and solo cellist Marie Macleod, together with pianist Martin Sturfält, take their places on stage in Grünewald Hall.
They will offer music by the extraordinarily thrilling and fascinating composer Louise Farrenc (1804–75). She was not only a skilled composer, but also an extremely prominent concert pianist and a professor at the Paris Conservatory for many years.
Tobias Broström has been an internationally renowned composer for many years, and his music has been performed on stages including Carnegie Hall in New York, Komische Oper Berlin, and Chicago Symphony Hall. His Once Upon a Time... for clarinet, cello and piano contains both nostalgic melodies and ingenious rhythms.
When Alexander von Zemlinsky presented his trio to Brahms, the latter was so impressed that he promptly contacted his own publisher Simrock to publish the piece. In this late-Romantic piece, Zemlinsky paints a musical picture with warm colours, long lines and passionate expression.
