Organ matinée with Stefan Therstam
Improvisations and a celebration of Johann Sebastian Bach.
Thursday 14 March 2024 12.15Ends approximately 13.00
Through Konserthuset’s popular organ matinée subscription, audiences get to hear prominent organists play the building’s organ – one of the largest in Europe, with 6,100 pipes.
Stefan Therstam has been the organist at Engelbrekt Church in Stockholm since 1999. He is also an award-winning improvisor and professor at the Royal College of Music in Stockholm, where he teaches liturgical organ playing and improvisation.
In Sigfrid Karg-Elert’s (1877–1933) Passacaglia and Fugue on BACH, at this organ matinée he demonstrates the incredible power of the mighty organ at Konserthuset. We also get a taste of Stefan Therstam’s unparalleled ability to improvise on a given theme.
The bar open before and after the concert.
You are welcome to eat or drink something before or after the organ concert. The bar in the Main Foyer is open at 11.45–12.15 and 13.15–14.15 and offers food and drink in our beautiful venue.
