On demand: Nystroem's Concerto ricercante

GSOplayRecorded at Gothenburg Concert Hall: Stora Salen, Gothenburg, Sweden
Online until Friday 31 May 2019
Nystroem, Gosta (1890-1966)Concerto ricercante

Gothenburg composer Gösta Nystroem had his feet planted in tradition, and his gaze fixed on the future.

His Concerto ricercante for piano and orchestra is rhythmically driven and curious; the “ricercare” of the baroque period means roughly “to seek,” and Nystroem probably sought where he stood: his time as a student in Paris, with influences from Stravinsky and Poulenc, for instance.

Watch it performed by Swedish pianist Anna Christensson with the Gothenburg Symphony conducted by Han-Na Chang.

Filmed in March 2019.
