About Gageego!

The Swedish ensemble Gageego! is appreciated for its ability to, in a joyful and refreshing way, interpret todays music in a technically polished, highly artistic manner.

Explorers and guides

Gageego! was formed in 1995 and with the explicit mission to explore and make contemporary music more accessible. As one of the key players in Contemporary Music Sweden, the  ensemble is held in high esteem for the pleasurable and curious way they interpret today’s music, while always pushing the technical and artistic levels to new highs.

International collaborations

The group collaborates regularly with Swedish and international guests such as Peter Eötvös, Heinz Karl Gruber och Pierre-André Valade.

Ovations on the global scene

In addition to concert performances in Sweden, the group has toured Russia, China, Denmark, and Austria where they were guest artists at the Vienna concert for the Lange Nacht der Neue Klänge. The Austrian press was enthusiastic.

“With precision, virtuosity and commitment Gageego! rejoiced in the Mozart-Saal” wrote Der Standard..

Wiener Zeitung wrote “Ensemble Gageego! made the audience forget about the tiredness. The ensemble played precisely, melodious and engaging. A Swedish win.”

The last few years Gageego! has presented annual series of concerts of their own in the Gothenburg Concert Hall.

A public exchange in pleasure

In the same way as Gageego! was born out of a number of musician’s need to play chamber music at the highest level, the group thrives on new challenges, both artistic and technical, in both modern classics and all new works, many of them commissioned for Gageego!. The success and the response from the audience encourages the ensemble to continue, ever discovering and renewing.
