O/Modernt © KulturOp SlavcoSpirovski

O/Modernt performs in a variety of guises, from small chamber groups to large ensembles, but its highly distinctive identity is defined by the creative programming of its Artistic Director, Hugo Ticciati. Reinventing the concert experience to create unique listening encounters for his audiences, Hugo skilfully unearths the most unexpected musical connections to weave creative fabrics in which baroque and rock, eastern and western, minimalist and romantic playfully interact and are mutually enriched. In these dramatically new contexts, which break down barriers of time and space, familiar works from the standard classical repertoire are revisited and juxtaposed with non-classical works in a wide range of styles and from a variety of traditions, both western and non-western.

Resident at the newly opened state-of-the-art Queen Silvia Hall in Stockholm, where they stage two annual festivals in February and June, respectively, O/Modernt attracts top players from Europe and around the world. Over the past decade, O/Modernt has gained an international reputation, with sell-out performances at Wigmore Hall, Konzerthaus Berlin, Wiener Musikverein and Muziekgebouw aan ‘t IJ, Amsterdam. Recent and upcoming highlights include the opening of the Flanders Festival (Ghent), concerts in Kölner Philharmonie, Elbphilharmonie (Schleswig-Holstein Musik Festival), Berwaldhallen (Baltic Sea Festival) and returns to Wigmore Hall and Kings Place in London.

O/Modernt’s creative philosophy also opens up a rare space for explorative partnerships with international musicians and artists working in a diverse range of styles. Recent collaborators include Evelyn Glennie, Steven Isserlis, Anne Sofie von Otter and Nils Landgren, as well as jazz artists, rappers, choreographers, dancers, painters and rock-balancers.
