Monday at Last with Electric Bass
Finnish base virtuoso interprets Bach together with strings.
Monday 26 April 2021 19.00Ends approximately 20.15
String trio ZPR was founded by Cecilia Zilliacus, violin; Johanna Persson, viola; and Kati Raitinen, cello. Monday at Last is a concert subscription in which ZPR, now for the twelfth year in a row, invites guest musicians to explore new and old music together, often in close contact with the audience.
The unparalleled Finnish electric bass virtuoso and composer Lauri Porra moves unencumbered between classical music and concerts with the power metal band Stratovarius, of which he is a member. His music has been performed by many of the major Nordic orchestras and his latest album, Entropia from 2018, is a collaboration with the Lahti Symphony Orchestra. Now we will get to hear his new project Cabins & Hideouts, in which he combines string instruments in an utterly unique blend. In Bach Reimagined, we will hear new versions of Bach’s music for electric bass and cello.
After Monday at Last concerts, the audience is warmly welcome to Pyttirian kitchen and bar in Kungshallen, next door to Konserthuset. There will be food and drinks for purchase for those who want it, and a chance to talk with the ensemble or one another – about the concert, music in general or something else entirely.
