During the concerts a work-in-progress version of the feature film Aeterna will be shown. A contemplative odyssey of sound and vision that portrays our future in a thought-provoking manner. The music is first performed by the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra, the Swedish Radio Choir and Hannah Holgersson, led by Esa-Pekka Salonen.
