Musicians from the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra offer charming, colourful music from the 1920s and 30s at this Soup Concert. Prague-born Erwin Schulhoff was an exciting name in the European art and music scene in the early decades of the twentieth century. Dvorák encouraged him to start studying music, and he was inspired early on by jazz and Dadaism. Don’t miss this opportunity to hear Schulhoff’s racing String Quartet No. 1.
Germaine Tailleferre was a member of Les Six, a loosely formed group of six composers in France in the 1920s who reacted against Impressionist and late-Romantic music. Her work is often light and playful, and filled with imaginative melodies.
Three divertimenti composed by Benjamin Britten at age 23. This charming and energetic music was included in a quintet and depicted a few of his classmates.
Menu: Mild coconut soup with lime and ginger. The soup comes with sourdough bread, crisp bread and whipped butter, as well as a beverage, coffee/tea and a small biscuit. All soups are lactose- and gluten-free. Notify us of any special dietary requests when making your booking.
