    It is not the first time that the Basel Titus Orchester performs a rare or forgotten pearl of orchestral literature. This time the orchestra will take its audience on a musical journey to Scandinavia. On the program is the romantic composer August Söderman from Sweden, who gained notoriety for his ballads and songs in the second half of the 19th century. Through the “Swedish Musical Heritage” organization, the Titus Orchester received the scans of Söderman's concert overture, which will probably be performed for the first time in Switzerland.
