Enriching the image of 250 year-old Ludwig van Beethoven, we invite you to an entertaining and tender cavalcade of folk songs arranged by the German titan. The traditional tunes – mainly from Ireland, Scotland and Germany – range from profound reflection to hilarious drinking songs.
Join us for a wonderful hour when six of our soloists interpret these folk songs, performing together with an eminent trio: David Bergström, concert master for the Göteborg Opera Orchestra on violin; cello soloist Patrik Harryson; and at the piano the Göteborg Opera’s Artistic Director for Opera/Drama, Henning Ruhe – concert pianist and accompanist to internationally renowned opera singers.
The concert was recorded at Stora Teatern.
