All Saints’ Day Concert

During All Saints’ Day, there is time to remember those who have left us. We light candles and are reminded that life is not forever, and that the loss may be great.

On All Saints’ Day, 31 October, the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra gives a concert with several stories that touch on this, told by people who – like all of us – feel loss, find strength, long for and mourn. Stories from the heart to music by Mahler, Sibelius, Stravinsky and other composers. Among the many artists are singer Peter Mattei and the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra’s chief conductor Santtu-Matias Rouvali.
