Tobias Ringborg conducts music by Elfrida Andrée and Wilhelm Stenhammar.

The concert is shown on Konserthuset Play

***

Elfrida Andrée, conductorc, composer and organist (in 1867 the first woman in Europe to become a cathedral organist) was influenced by the music of Beethoven, Mendelssohn and Schubert, and composed chamber music and many excellent symphonies. Here, Ulf Norberg, organist of Konserthuset Stockholm, has a leading role in the Organ Symphony No 2, written for organ and brass.

Stenhammar’s Serenade is one of the most refined and exquisite pieces ever composed by a Swedish composer. He wrote it while visiting Florence in 1907. In one of his letters, he says, “I want to write beautifully and tenderly about the south, in a way that only a resident of the north can do.” And indeed he succeeded, for the Serenade is a masterpiece: sensual southern European music presented in Nordic light – playful, lyrical and beautiful.

The Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra is led by Tobias Ringborgsom, who is not only an internationally acclaimed conductor, but also a violinist and an active advocate for Swedish music. He conducted one of the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra’s live-streamed concerts from Konserthuset Stockholm on short notice in the spring.
