Quinte & Sens : Une symphonie pour les éléments
(Quinte & Sens: A Symphony of the Elements)

Quinte & Sens sets out to rethink the orchestra's relationship with the image and to create a visual score that carries all the power of a repertoire. In a similar vein to the films of Karajan and Clouzot, this work is a symphony of the imagination, a story of music in creation. The Orchestre de Paris makes a sublime return to its beloved Philharmonie with a grand, impressionistic musical fresco inspired by the four elements, featuring excerpts from Stravinsky's Firebird and Rite of Spring as well as Debussy's La mer in full. Deprived of its "home" during the first lockdown, the Orchestre de Paris reclaims La Philharmonie with gusto. From dawn until dusk, its musicians plot a musical journey from the cellar to the roof, via the magnificent concert hall and the labyrinth of passages.

Vi spelar för freden (Playing for Peace)

Kyiv Soloists toured Europe when Russia decided to invade Ukraine. Some musicians returned home in order to defend their country or get their families out of it, and some decided to continue the tour. Since then, the ensemble has travelled through Europe with no return tickets, playing for peace. They have turned their tour into fundraising concerts for the victims of war. In March they arrived at the Stockholm Concert Hall and SVT filmed their concert. Conversations and interviews are mixed with rarely played Ukrainian music. The evening begins with Adolf Fredrik Music School's welcoming the ensemble to Stockholm with a Ukrainian folk song, and ends with Ode to Freedom from Abba's new record Voyage, with the composer himself at the grand piano.
