About Festival O/Modernt 2023

Festival O/Modernt 2023 pays tribute to Brahms, pairing his chamber and symphonic works with new Brahms-inspired commissions by Albert Schnelzer, Sebastian Fagerlund and Jill Jarman, and juxtaposing his music with some unexpected partners, including the rock band Nirvana, Henry Purcell and Philip Glass. O/Modernt gathers a wonderful array of artists from around the world to share the stage with emerging talents for a week of concerts and arts events.
