MUSIC FOR MIDSUMMER · HUGO ALFVÉN & THE GANG
Jubilee Concert on Midsummer Solstice by Regents Park, June 21st @ 7pm
Tune into that lustrous, verdant Scandi midsummer tradition, and savour some of the much-loved choral music by Alfvén, Peterson-Berger and Stenhammar.
To mark Hugo Alfvén's 150th birthday, the London Nordic Choir will hold an hour-long concert featuring some of our finest composers and captivating lyrical poets. Very much in the spirit of Lord Byron, Yates & Tennyson. This piece of shared cultural heritage, as a response to the industrialism, is a bit of a gem. An era that yearned for beauty and nature, in everything from music to art and architecture.
Alfvén - musician, author and artist - was one of Scandinavia's more prominent composers with stylistic influences from both Europe and Nordic folk music. Although his symphonies are well-know in the UK; the choral works are less so. This is chance to sit back, close your eyes and be whisked away to those distant fragrant, floral pastures!
We have a number of videos on our YouTube Channel, so feel free to browse and listen to some of our previous performances.
