Organ matinée with Martin Olsson
Angels and dance moves in a French programme.
Thursday 17 November 2022 12.15Ends approximately 13.00
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.
Martin Olsson, organist in Södertälje, performs music for organ that dances. Julien Bret’s (born 1974) dreamy French-inspired La Valse des Anges and La Valse des Colombes inspire dreams of southern Europe. This is followed by a Spanish dance in Pierre Cholley’s (born 1962) rhythmic Tango and Paso-doble.
We remain in Spain, as Edwin Henry Lemare’s Carmen Fantasy is a piece built upon themes from Georges Bizet’s beloved opera, Carmen. Lemare (1865–1934) was an English organist and composer who lived the latter part of his life in the US. He was one of the best-regarded organists of his time and one of the most important composers of the romantic English-American school.
