FJORD CLASSICS 2023 STARTER 4.JULI

About Fjord Classics

Mission

Our mission is to present the very best music from the classical repertoire, played by top international musicians. We want to enrich and give our audiences something that is deep and meaningful. We don´t try to popularize classical music, or to bow to the common man´s taste. We want rather to give our audiences a sense of satisfaction that they have achieved something intellectually, understood something they thoughtwas out of reach. 

The driving force behind Fjord Classics is the team´s passionate belief that everyone needs classical music - they are just not aware of it! We strive to present our concerts in an appealing and accessible manner.Many people think that classical music is something for other people. Our main message to newcomers is that you don´t need to understand anything about classical music to enjoy it. All you need is a pair of ears and a touch of curiosity! As with all forms of art, they are to be experienced rather than understood.
