Concert with the Royal Swedish Orchestra 
VIVALDI/BEETHOVEN

Despite the pandemic, the energy and joy of playing live is still great with the Royal Swedish Orchestra. The last few years have meant something of a generation change in the orchestra and with this concert, some of the orchestra's new and talented musicians get the opportunity to shine. In Antonio Vivaldi's virtuoso piccolo concerto from 1728-29, we hear Indra Strautmanis perform this difficult piece superbly. In Ludwig van Beethoven's sextet from 1795 we hear Hovkapellet's latest member in the horn section, Benedikt Scholtes from Germany, together with Björn Olsson by his side.
Program
Antonio Vivaldi (1678-1741) Piccolo Concerto in C major (RV 443, 1728-29)
