Classic Swedish brass octet
The Octet Ehnstedts Eftr. (Ehnstedt's successors) breathes new life into a repertoire from spa towns, hotel gardens and regiment meetings around the turn of the 20th century. There will be music from operatic stages, concert halls and ballrooms that was popular a hundred years ago but is rarely heard today.

The Octet Ehnstedts Eftr. is a classic Swedish brass octet that plays older instruments such as the soprano cornet, the tenor horn and the tenor bassoon. The octet's handwritten sheet music, featuring arrangements of music that was popular at the time, was originally used more than a hundred years ago by an octet led by band leader Magnus Herman Ehnstedt from the 2nd Life Grenadier Regiment (I5) in Linköping. The octet is named after him.

Entry: SEK 50. Free entry for children aged 7 or under.
