Composer Weekend – Fantasia
Chamber music in the festival of Tobias Broström’s music.
Sunday 2 April 2023 16.00Ends approximately 18.00
Tobias Broström is known for his rhythmically powerful music, colourful orchestration and distinctive sense of harmonics. His richly associative, nearly cinematic narrative compositions are performed by orchestras all over the world. Now he is at the centre of Konserthuset Stockholm’s Composer Weekend 2023.
Tobias Broström has a strong focus on chamber music. We hear David Huang in his Fantasia for piano and the Stenhammar Quartet in the occasionally dreamy and evocative String Quartet No. 1. Together, they tackle the world premiere of a newly composed piano quintet.
Johan Bridger was the soloist at the world premiere of the percussion concerto Arena, which was performed at Saturday’s festival concert. Here, he is the soloist in the striking, virtuosic and frequently performed solo version of this concerto.
