Starting on November 16, Gageego! and Sixten Nordström will embark on a West Swedish tour produced by Musik i Väst. The programme is titled Salong Modern.

With equal parts knowledge and humor, Sixten Nordström guides us through our eventful musical age. We hear the truth about how Karl-Erik Welin sawed himself in the leg during a concert – an horrific event that followed him for the rest of his life. But also about the tragic circumstances surrounding the creation of Alban Berg’s violin concerto, or about the scandals surrounding Schönberg and his disciples in the childhood of twelve-tone music.

The journey starts with the “last” romantic, Richard Strauss, visits Schönberg and his student Berg and Bartók. Stockhausen, Messiaen and the American Morton Feldman have been chosen among the big names of the post-war generation. Swedish modern music is represented by Sven-Erik Bäck and Lars Johan Werle to finally land in the simmering 90’s and one of the most notable composers on Swedish soil in recent years, Fredrik Österling.

Five of the concerts on the tour are part of The Chamber Music Federation of Sweden’s youth initiative “Young ears”.
