A Moveable Feast

  • Stockholms Konserthus, Grünewaldsalen 8 Hötorget Stockholm, Stockholms län, 111 57 Sweden (map)

“If you are lucky enough to have lived in Paris as a young man, then wherever you go for the rest of your life, it stays with you, for Paris is a moveable feast.” - Ernest Hemingway
Music from Stockholm Syndrome Ensemble's debut album, "A Moveable Feast." During the early 1900s, Paris was the mecca of creative souls. Artists from all over the world found their way there and the environment gave inspiration. The two very different composers Manuel de Falla and Maurice Ravel was attracted to the city in 1907. The evening's program puts in a fascinating way their music simultaneously and interweave it with poetry and pictures from that time. SSE starts the concert with Swedish composer Carin Malmlöf-Forsslings string quartet "Silverkvartetten". Malmlöf-Forssling studied composition for Nadia Boulanger in Paris during the 50:s.

In the concert's second part, Grünewaldsalen is really going to sound like Paris when incredibly versatile Norwegian mezzo-soprano Tuva Semmingsen interprets famous chanson and other vocal Moulin Rouge hits with Stockholm Syndrome Ensemble.
- This program is taken from our musical hearts and it feels so right to perform this program at the Stockholm Syndrome Ensemble's first concert at Konserthuset. We have long wanted to do something together with Tuva Semmingsen and it is incredibly inspiring to finally get the chance, says Johannes Rostamo.
