Musical Postcard from Stockholm 1770 – Music from the Utile Dulci Collection

October 12, 2021 - 9:00 pm

The Utile Dulci was a literary and musical Academy and a Secret Society in Stockholm, Sweden, during the latter part of the 18th century. The society was a forerunner to the Svenska Akademien and was a preparation for The Royal Swedish Academy of Music. Its members, among others, were writers, composers, and musicians and it had king Gustaf III as patron.

The society has left behind a solid music collection of music performed at the society’s various gatherings, this collection, this amazing cultural heritage, is now preserved at the Musik- och teaterbiblioteket (Music and Theater Library) in Stockholm.

The collection shows what kind of music was played in Stockholm and throughout Europe during the 18th century, and combines Sweden with the rest of Europe both in a cultural and a social way. In this concert music from the collection is performed, music by both known and unknown composers such as Hupfeld, Festing, and Uttini, unique music that has probably never been performed since the 18th century!
