Stockholm Chamber Music: Midnight Songs
Location: City Museum, auditorium floor 2
Price: 100–275 SEK
Minna Weurlander and David Härenstam challenge the boundaries of what chamber music can be.
Stockholm Chamber Music takes residence in City Museum!
The chamber music series concludes with a virtuoso program where you get to meet Minna Weurlander, one of Europe’s foremost accordionists, in collaboration with the series’ artistic director David Härenstam on classical guitar.
Few instruments blend together better than guitar and accordion, and few instruments have the same special sound of nostalgia, pain, joy, and dreaminess. Historically genre-free and equally beloved by the audience.
During this concert, we will hear works by famous composers such as W.A. Mozart, Philip Glass, and Astor Piazzolla, as well as specially written music by Albert Schnelzer and unique interpretations of composers such as Thelonious Monk, Duke Ellington, and Pat Metheny.
Minna Weurlander was born and raised in Finland, but music brought her to Sweden. She is considered today one of Europe’s foremost accordionists and works with symphony orchestras, string quartets, and theatres in large parts of the world.
David Härenstam has after an Advanced Diploma for Professor John Mills recorded and participated in a long series of internationally successful records and participated in radio and TV. David is also the artistic director of two chamber music festivals and has toured as a soloist and chamber musician in China, Australia, and Europe.
The concerts are made possible with support from Region Stockholm and Längmanska kulturfonden.
