The Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra opens its regular concert season under the baton of Ryan Bancroft. Welcome to this particularly festive concert. During intermission, the audience will be offered refreshments in the lovely foyers of Konserthuset.
Carl Orff’s Carmina Burana is one of the world’s most famous and beloved pieces for choir and orchestra. It is a magnificent tribute to nature, longing, wine and how wonderful it is to be alive, even if life can be quite painful at times. The evocative music of Carl Orff is based on simple melodies derived from Gregorian music, Bavarian folk music, Italian opera and Lutheran chorales.
While Orff was captivated by melodies, Franz Schreker competes with Claude Debussy and Richard Strauss for the title of most-refined composer of the early-twentieth century. His entire life, he was fascinated by sound and tones. Vorspiel zu einem Drama – Prelude to a drama – is a reworking of the introduction to his opera Die Gezeichneten, The Branded, an expressionist and powerful psychological drama.
Katarina Leyman’s Roller Coaster: Super 8 is inspired by Beethoven’s eighth symphony and childhood experiences on the roller coaster at Gothenburg’s Liseberg amusement park. But this music is not merely a simple illustration of a roller coaster; rather, as Katarina Leyman herself says, “It captures the exhilaration and perhaps the worry one may feel on a ride like that, an adventure at an amusement park or in life …”.
