Summer Night Concerts

National Museum of Arts, Stockholm

Artistic Director - Staffan Mårtensson

The magic of a Stockholm summer night

- art and music in close harmony



Thank you, audience and artists! It's been five fantastic years.



July 5, 2012.

Last night's recital with Per Tengstrand at Nationalmuseum marks the end of my five-year period as Artistic Director, as this was the final Summer Night Concert for a while. The museum will close in February 2013 for renovation works.

I hope to resume the Summer Night Concerts when the Nationalmuseum reopens, which means not before 2018...

This tradition was revived in 2008 on my iniative. 

Since then we've had five seasons of memorable summer night concerts.

(The original concert series started in 1930 and disappeared in the 1990's.)
