Stöde Music Festival Week
This event takes place during the last week of July in Stöde.
It originates from a co-operation between Lars Jönsson and his former teacher Margareta Rudbo who was a precentor at the congregation of Stöde when Lars Jönsson grew up.
Lars , the artistic leader of the chamber music concerts, is a soloist, chamber musician and an accompanist who has been engaged in different places in Europe, among them by the Academies of Music in Frankfurt and Stuttgart where he lives, From 2013 on he introduces the concerts of the Radio-Orchestra of Stuttgart.
Lars had come to give piano-concerts in
Stöde for more than 15 years when the
idea came up to organize a yearly Music
Festival Week with the main focus on
chamber music. In 2006 the plans were
realized and we, Stöde Kulturförening
(a non-profit cultural association) are
now working with this year´s (2014)
Music Festival Week and we have kept the original concept.
During the years we have given exciting concerts, First performances of different kinds, presented unexpected choice of music and introduced some of the best soloists engaged by the great orchestras in Central Europe, together with many of Sweden´s best instrumental artists. Besides chamber music we have presented jazz, organ and accordeon concerts and activities for children.
We welcome you to visit Stöde Music Festival Week. The concerts take place in the church.
