Step into a nocturnal sound world when the chamber ensemble Gageego! explores the possibilities of the organ and the ensemble in the enormous acoustics of the concert hall.
Inspired by the new concert hall organ, Swedish composer Madeleine Isaksson has written a brand new piece for Gageego! and organ. In tonight’s concert, we get to be part of the premiere.
We also hear Isaksson’s piece Fibers for flute, violin and guitar and Anna Korsun’s Spleen for bass flute, clarinet, barytone saxophone, violin and two cellos. And in Germany-based Marina Khrokova’s Installation, the organ’s entire tonal spectrum is explored. Hans Hellsten, professor at Malmö Academy of Music and specialist in contemporary organ music, is the soloist.
The concert is carried out with the support of The Swedish Arts Council.
