On 12 September, Martin Fröst gives his inaugural performance as Chief Conductor of the Swedish Chamber Orchestra at the Örebro Concert Hall. His appointment in this post was announced back in 2017, marking a new chapter in his artistic journey. In recent years, whilst Fröst has been recognised for pushing the boundaries of performance as a clarinettist, he has also been increasingly active as a conductor.
The season opens with one of Fröst’s acclaimed projects, Genesis, the second among Dollhouse and Retrotopia. It is a multifaceted presentation of existing and new repertoire aiming to transform traditional conceptions of the classical concert setting, featuring pieces composed especially for these projects. Genesis includes choreography, speech, solo performance and choral singing, offering to audiences an unforgettable musical experience.
Fröst will return to the Swedish Chamber Orchestra on 2 October to resume an exciting season that will focus on the music of Mozart through his travels in Europe. Starting with the Clarinet Concerto in A major, a piece which Fröst has mastered since the beginning of his career, the rest of the programme features Mozart’s Prague Symphony No.38.
