Frank Peter Zimmermann is widely acclaimed for his beautifully resonant violin-playing and he is considered one of the foremost violin soloists of our time. He has guest-performed at Konserthuset Stockholm many times before and is currently on the programme for the ongoing festivities in honour of the anniversary of Beethoven. At this concert, we will hear him in Robert Schumann’s passionate Violin Concerto.

American Alan Gilbert conducts the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra. He is chief conductor of the Hamburg NDR Elbphilharmonie, and the newly appointed music director of the Royal Swedish Opera in Stockholm. Gilbert was chief conductor of the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra 2000–2008 and he is now its Conductor Laureate. He was subsequently chief conductor of the New York Philharmonic Orchestra.

Here, he also leads the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra in French music: Ravel’s Une barque sur l'ocean (A Ship on the Sea) is music taken from what was originally a piano suite, Miroirs; Lili Boulanger’s D'un matin de printemps – one of the last pieces composed by this young genious who died all too soon; finally Roussel’s vibrant ballet music Bacchus et Ariane, Suite No 2.
