Festive opening concert

Concert 1 – Thursday, August 29
at 7 pm
"The sun goes down, the tones rise"

"Do you like Brahms?" Asked the scandalous French writer Françoise Sagan in a book title from 1960. She does not answer the question in the book and God knows if she listened to Brahms music very much, or at all. But Brahms is an idol for many music lovers. Listen to his first piano quintet, which has a remarkable storyline. Who wrote the music to Geijer's poem Tonerna? Is there a more beautiful song than Richard Strauss offers us in Morgen? Among the forgotten composers today is the modest Gabriel Fauré. His Piano Quartet No. 1 is to be performed today.

Concert 2 – Friday 30th August
at 7 pm
"Mozart in tone and words"

Wolfgang Amadé Mozart, according to most music lovers, he deserves a full day at the Kvarnamåla festival. In addition to a violin sonata, four songs and a string quintet, in a jazzified costume, perhaps his most played work is to be performed to-day: “Eine kleine Nachtmusik” (Small evening music) Hear more about his short life as the strange person himself tells us from reading some of his many letters (some not quite clean room stories)!
