The brightest crown of Swedish music life comes to Helsinki Music Centre!

The brightest crown of Swedish music life comes to Helsinki Music Centre! Founded in 1902, the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra is one of the most prestigious and popular in Northern Europe – it regularly plays at the Nobel festivities and large outdoor concerts in Stockholm.


There is no shortage of stardom as the orchestra welcomes its guest soloist, the American soprano Renée Fleming. Fleming, one of the most dazzling singers in the world, performs songs by Samuel Barber and Richard Strauss.


The concert begins with Liguria by the young Swedish composer Andrea Tarrodi. It was inspired by the coastal region of Liguria in Italy: Tarrodi’s musical walkabout takes the audience to the region’s idyllic fishing villages. The music calls forth images of sunny landscapes, rugged cliffs and clear nights basking in starlight.


The evening ends with the second symphony, The Four Temperaments, by Denmark’s most prominent composer, Carl Nielsen. The concert is conducted by Sakari Oramo, who has been the orchestra’s Chief Conductor since 2008.
