In the evening's concert, school students participate in the culture schools in Sjuhärad.

They can play in two real classics, namely Schubert's unsuccessful symphony and Sibelius Finlandia.

By his death, Schubert had only orchestrated the first two bets and 20 beatings of the third. The work was then forgotten in a desk box and was erected 37 years after his death.

Jean Sibelius Finlandia was composed in 1899 and was performed in the same year with Sibelius as conductor. The work was performed under many different names because of its former political situation.

Tonight's soloist Roger Carlsson has been a percussionist in Göteborg's Symphonics since 1982 and has also had a victory as a solo plumber in the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra. A number of composers have composed music directly to him.

Aulis Sallinen's Symphony No. 2 came to 1972 after an order from Norrköping Symphony Orchestra. In the symphony, Sallinen shows that he can both be releasedand control unremitting forces. The solo percussion meeting is well integrated in the broad context. Roger has previously performed the work with Borås Symphony Orchestra 1979.

If you have not heard Roger playing or listening to Sallinen before, a celebration is celebrated.

Evening conductor Finn Rosengren is known not least after his many years as conductor at the Gothenburg Opera. Finn has become famous for his great involvement of Swedish composers through different epochs, but also as a good-time teacher with the younger musicians.

18:30 play the youngest street students in the foyer.
