Presented By: Music Worcester

For Valentine's Day on Feb. 14, 2018, at 7:30 PM, Music Worcester proudly presents a remarkable symphony orchestra from Sweden. The Helsingborg Symphony Orchestra (HSO) was founded in 1912 and is one of Sweden’s oldest orchestras. Its principal conductors have included Sten Frykberg, John Frandsen, Okko Kamu, and Andrew Manze, with whom it has recorded symphonies by Beethoven and Brahms. The HSO is undoubtedly one of the region’s key international leaders and is much sought-after for both concert tours and recording projects. PROGRAM Sibelius - Valse Triste No. 1 Rachmaninoff - Piano Concerto No. 2 Brahms - Symphony No. 2 In addition to regular guest appearances on major Scandinavian stages (such as Berwaldhallen and Konserthuset in Stockholm), the HSO has had many successes at prominent European venues (such as three sold-out recent concerts at the Great Festival Hall in Salzburg and in Vienna). Future engagements include appearances in Munich and Nuremberg in 2016. The HSO’s extensive discography has also received rave response and reviews, especially its recordings of the music of Mieczyslaw Weinberg and the complete orchestral works of Lars-Erik Larsson. Highly acclaimed for her “Elegance, humour, fiery imagination“, “unique sensual narrative tone”, “precise stylistic approach”, “dazzling technique”, “charismatic stage presence”, and described as a “major, major, major talent…potential superstar” by Musical America Magazine, sensational pianist Nareh Arghamanyan, who is still in her twenties, has shaken the music world and has been praised worldwide by various critics, concert presenters, conductors, and audiences alike. From Musikverein Vienna to Lincoln Center New York, Nareh dazzles audiences in prominent halls like Wigmore Hall, Philharmonie Berlin, Laieszhalle Hamburg, Herkulessaal Munich, Konzerthaus Vienna, Gewandhaus Leipzig, Ambassador Auditorium Los Angeles, Konzerthaus Dortmund, Tonhalle Düsseldorf, Gardner Museum Boston, Philadelphia Kimmel Center, Petronas Hall Kuala Lumpur, Osaka Concert Hall Japan and others.
