Un-BARE-able: more concerts

At this time pretty much every major orchestra in Europe (including all the major Swedish Orchestras) have announced their 2011-2012 seasons, and not surprisingly, Pettersson is mostly absent, save a few exceptions. When one sees Pettersson on an orchestral concert program it is almost guaranteed that it will be the Barefoot Songs or the Symphony No. 7, but I am glad to report some exceptions below.

Barefoot Songs 

Concerto No. 1 for String Orchestra (how about that!)

Concerto No. 2 for Violin and Orchestra (how about that!)

Döbeln, Mittelsächsisches Theater, 28 October 2011
Freiberg, Mittelsächsisches Theater, 3 November 2011 

Check out the webpage of the soloist, Rebekka Hartmann. 

Unfortunately the Freiberg performance is at the same time as a performance of the Symphony No. 6 in Norrköping. Gah!!!

  1. Good job I didn't know about the Violin Concerto concert because I would have been completely torn as to what to do, where to go. The 6th symphony in both Norrkoping and Linkoping was fabulous but I adore the Violin Concerto too. Ida Haendel is the perfect soloist, is she not? A great recording.
