Chamber Music Festival in Allhelgonakyrkan
Festival 2019 - Women composers
Allhelgonakyrkan, situated on the island "Söder", is one of the finest spaces for chamber music in Stockholm. The size is perfect, seating 250; the acoustics are marvelous, it makes no difference where one sits and the space can be filled equally well by a solo instrument or voice as by a chamber orchestra.
Nearly every summer since 1999 KVAH (which is the Swedish acronym for Friends of Chamber Music at Allhelgonakyrkan) has organized a chamber music festival. Come and enjoy wonderful chamber music in a beautiful space in a lovely city.
This year's chamber music festival in Allhelgonakyrkan is not that far away. The theme this year is women composers - from Clara Schumann and Amanda Maier to contempoary Swedish composers. Many of Sweden's foremost musicians will perform about twenty compositions in five concerts during the four days. Most of the concerts mix pieces for solo piano with, among others, solo harp, string quarters and songs, old and new.
Henriikka Gröndahl, soprano, Cecilia Zilliacus & Julia-Maria Kretz, violin,
Ylvali Zilliacus, viola, Kati Raitinen, cello,
Karin Dornbusch, clarinet, Lisa Viguier Vallgårda, harp, The Treitler Quartet,
Matti Hirvonen, Erik Risberg and Bengt Forsberg, piano
Program for each day
