O/Modernt Chamber Orchestra

A refreshing thunderstorm

—Kleine Zeitung Klagenfurt

‘Fiery, staggering and fragile’

Directed by violinist Hugo Ticciati, the O/Modernt Chamber Orchestra is an integral part of O/Modernt. Comprised of top young players from all over Europe, the orchestra performs eclectic and adventurous programmes, with anything from arrangements of medieval motets to Bach, Webern and Metallica. The orchestra regularly collaborates with world-renowned soloists such as Evelyn Glennie, Steven Isserlis, Anne Sofie von Otter and Nils Landgren, as well as jazz artists, rappers, choreographers, rock-balancers and more!

Although only a few years old, the orchestra has gained an international reputation, with performances at the Wigmore Hall, Konzerthaus Berlin, Wiener Musikverein and Muziekgebouw aan ‘t IJ, Amsterdam. The O/Modernt players enjoy a wide range of outreach and educational projects in Sweden, the UK and further afield in India.

The Swedish string ensemble led by Hugo Ticciati fascinates from the first measure: such tender homogeneity in its playing, such a wealth of colour beneath! —Der Tagesspiegel, Berlin
Berliner Morgenpost

The Stockholm-based chamber orchestra O/Modernt leads the way. Britten’s Variations on a theme by his composition teacher Frank Bridge burn with such an intense flame that the audience is tempted to applaud between movements.

The Arts Desk, London

And above all Ticciati showed his directing, for which read conducting, instinct as leader with the most perfect openings and endings of movements, the mark of real greatness in music-making.

Svenska Dagbladet, Sweden

The audience stood up with an enthusiastic roar – and sure enough, it was one of the most rejuvenating concerts I’ve been to recently.

Der Tagesspiegel, Berlin

Ticciati is a soloist ready for anything, whose joy in differentiated playing inspires his string-playing colleagues, turning Vasks’ will-o’-the-wisp music into profound insight.
