Lund City


Richard Strauss composed his Metamorphoses for 23 solo strings in the spring of 1945, a time when Germany was defeated on the battlefield, the concentration camps were opened and old cultural cities were laid in ruins. The saddest music ever written, as it has sometimes been described. Especially when Strauss alludes to the mourning march in Beethoven's third symphony, "Eroica".

At the concert, 23 string musicians from the Academic Chapel, under the direction of music director Patrik Andersson, as well as musicologist Tobias Lund, who frames the work from a cultural-historical perspective, take part.
