18. Stenhammar's Contemporaries

10 October 2021, 22:00 - 23:00



Concluding our day focussed on Wilhelm Stenhammar, we welcome back these two exceptional Swedish artists, who gave one of the most memorably dramatic recitals the Festival has ever seen in 2019. They perform Stenhammar alongside another great Swedish song composer, Ture Rangström, and their compatriot Wilhelm Peterson-Berger with whom Stenhammar often found himself at loggerheads!
