***

An impressive line-up of philharmonic musicians is participating in this varied concert, with Swedish music preceding Brahms’ Piano Quartet No. 1. 

Paula af Malmborg Ward’s Two bows, a waltz and something in between for cello and double bass was nominated for the 2011 Musikförläggarnas Pris, the music publisher’s award. Torleif Thedéen and Cathy Elliott performed the world premiere of the piece. The composer has explained that the title came to her first, after which she set out to compose a work that fit. Between a cautious introduction and conclusion, there is an abrupt immersion into a playful or perhaps unpredictable piece of music. In 2011, Paula af Malmborg Ward was the focus of Konserthuset Stockholm’s Composer Weekend.

Gunnar de Frumerie (1908–87) is included among the so-called trettiotalisterna, a prominent group of composers (such as Lars-Erik Larsson and Dag Wirén) and other artists who emerged in the 1930s. Musica per nove – Music for Nine – was composed in 1976, soon after the passing of his sister, cellist Carin de Frumerie-Luthander. The music includes quotations from pieces they played together, particularly Brahms, for instance his Piano Quartet No. 3. 

Brahms was 23 when he began composing his first piano quartet, but it was not finished until 15 years later. The world premiere of the piece was in Hamburg in 1861 – featuring none other than Clara Schumann as the pianist. The following year, Brahms himself made his debut in Vienna as a pianist and composer with this piece of music. It is a four-movement piece with a spectacular finale.
