Sakari Oramo conducts the music of Anders Hillborg

It is easy to immerse yourself in music as seductive as Anders Hillborg’s. The climax of our Total Immersion weekend is this concert in which Sakari Oramo underlines his own belief that the Swedish composer ‘has acquired a signature way of writing for orchestra’.

Whilst some of Hillborg’s works are traditional Nordic nature landscapes built on spatial breadth and filmic atmosphere, his clarinet concerto Peacock Tales is less abstract and more immediate, tailored to the theatrical and communicative flair of soloist Martin Fröst.

After the UK premiere of Violin Concerto No 1, a brand new Hillborg work, commissioned by the BBC, closes the concert.

Join at 6pm for a pre-concert talk from the composer Anders Hillborg himself, in conversation about his life and music.

This concert is part of the BBC’s ‘Hillborg: Total Immersion’ Series.
