About the Concert

Yellow + blue = green. We all know this from painting: When two colors are mixed together, a new third is created. Malte will show that this also works with sounds and tones with the "Atmosphères" by György Ligeti - a work that is over 60 years old but still very modern. I wonder what Phili, the curious little earth girl, will say about it. Anders Hillborg's new concerto is quite virtuosic, with the viola taking over the solo part - an instrument that always sounds somewhat dark and melancholy, but for that very reason appeals to the heart and soul. So once again there is "phil to discover".
