Unsuk Chin: major retrospective at Stockholm festival

(November 2013)

Unsuk Chin's music is the subject of this year's Tonsättarfestival presented by the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic at the Konzerthuset, with four concerts and a range of Swedish premieres.

Unsuk Chin travels to Stockholm for a major retrospective of her music at the Konzerthuset between 14 and 17 November. The Tonsättarfestival's annual focus on a single contemporary composer includes four programmes with ten Chin works, five of which are receiving Swedish premieres.

The festival has a special focus on Chin's concertos, for sheng, piano, violin, cello and the double concerto for piano and percussion, with soloists including Wu Wei, Sunwook Kim, Viviane Hagner and Alban Gerhardt. Recent works include the final six movement version of Gougalon and the chamber orchestra score Graffiti. Also featured is Chin's Scenes from Alice in Wonderland with vocalists Sally Matthews and Jenni Bank and the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic conducted by Susanna Mälkki. For full information visit
