10 year anniversary concert!

by svejohan

Gothenburg, Sweden
Mimitabu has for 10 years conveyed the shifting soundscapes of the newest Scandinavian art music in a playful and virtuosic manner, from scandispectralism, geometric constructivism, coloured noise and junk yard aesthetics to music inspired by Swedish November weather. By stretching the possibilities of the ensemble’s acoustic instruments (flute, oboe, clarinet, percussion, piano, violin, viola and cello) to the limits, complemented with electronics and various sounding objects, we can offer unexpected and near limitless sound worlds.

The anniversary concert looks both backward and forward – we present highlights from our repertoire in music by Esaias Järnegard, Johan Svensson, Lina Järnegard, Martin Rane Bauck and Ylva Lund Bergner, as well as a world premiere by the Icelandic composer Guðmundur Steinn Gunnarsson. There will also be a very special surprise!

Where:
Atalante, Gothenburg

When:
Saturday, April 18th 2020. 19:00

Programme:
Gudmundur Steinn – New work
Esaias Järnegard – Isola
Ylva Lund Bergner – Euphorbia
Lina Järnegard – Kylan, plötslig
Johan Svensson – Rita cirklar
Martin Rane Bauck – tierhaft, engelsgleich
+ surprise!

Presented by Mimitabu with support from the City of Gothenburg and the Swedish Arts Council.
