Nordic: A Fragile Hope

For the immersive concert experience Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra (Göteborgs Symfoniker) has commissioned orchestral works from five prominent composers from all Nordic countries, Daníel Bjarnason (Iceland), Miho Hazama (Denmark), Mats Larsson Gothe (Sweden), Maja S. K. Ratkje (Norway) and Outi Tarkiainen (Finland).

Drawing inspiration from the Nordic nature, each commission in “Nordic – A Fragile Hope” serves as a poignant reminder of the delicate balance and sensitive resources found in the Nordic region and the problems with climate change. The unique concert experience is created in collaboration with photo journalist Joakim Odelberg and film director Andrea Östlund and features film projections hightlighting the magnificient Nordic climate in the Great Hall of the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra.
