Cancelled: Organ Matinée with Nils Larsson

This concert is cancelled.

Music by Bach, Fauré – and Larsson himself.

Through Konserthuset’s popular organ matinée subscription, audiences get to hear Sweden’s leading organists play the building’s organ – one of the largest in Europe, with 6,100 pipes.

After graduating with a degree in organ performance and improvisation, and furthering his studies in Paris, London, Amsterdam and the US, Nils Larsson has become established as one of the most prominent organists in Sweden. Since 1992, he has primarily been active as a church musician at Högalid Church in Stockholm, but he also teaches solo organ playing, liturgical organ playing and improvisation at the Royal College of Music in Stockholm. Larsson is a master of many styles and genres and is also a skilled improviser, especially in various forms of Baroque music.

Today’s organ matinée programme includes Larsson’s improvisation for organ solo Old-fashioned Prelude – a tribute to the old master Dieterich Buxtehude, Fantasie on A-N-I-A-R-A as well as a suite for organ solo on Our planet in Tarkovsky’s cinematic world, which is also by Nils Larsson.

In addition, we will hear music by Johann Sebastian Bach, Gabriella Gullin, Czech composer Petr Eben, who was also a skilled improviser, and a nocturne from Gabriel Fauré’s incidental music to the comedy Shylock, a play based on Shakespeare’s Merchant of Venice.

This concert is cancelled.
