Welcome!Östergötland Music Days, 12-19 augusti 2023

invites you to enjoy classical music and jazz in our beautiful region.

Our main cities are Linköping and Norrköping, but we play all over the province – in castles, churches, art museums, concert halls.

During the week you will meet Swedish artists such as star soprano Ida Falk Winland with the Norrköping Symphony Orchestra and Sweden’s leading singer/song-writer Edda Magnason, as well as an international guest: French pianist Frédéric Lagarde.

Frédéric is our featured soloist with the oFo Chamber Orchestra and the Östgöta Symphonic Winds in this year’s final concert with the divine music of Mozart, badly needed for all of us in these terrifying times of human cruelty.

You will also meet visiting chamber groups like the Stenhammar Quartet, baroque ensemble Barabarock and the string trio Norna.
Local professional groups include the Crusell Wind Quintet, displaying female composers, the Östgöta Brass Quintet, presenting a children’s concert, and the Östgöta Jazz Band in a tribute to Chick Corea and his music. A very special concert is given by Delphine Constantine-Reznik and friends. Delphine is the virtuoso harp player of the Norrköping Symphony Orchestra.

Take a good look into our program, I hope you will find a number of interesting venues to visit.

The Music Days have developed into the most important classical music summer event in the province of Östergötland, together with the Vadstena Academy (which produces mainly opera). But over the years, the concept of chamber music has broadened. Besides the classical-romantic repertoire, our programmes contain baroque, contemporary, jazz, Swedish folk music, ethnic music, blues, choir, church music… Many prominent actors, dancers and lecturers have taken part in cross-over concerts.
