The concert house

It´s a pity I thought when I published this picture, that I did´nt have a bluer sky.
Stockholms Concerthouse is clearly light blue much more blue than the variating lights tell here. Located at Hötorget (or the haysquare directly translated) it´s a unusual but calm building. Built in 1926 for more classical concerts and even theater it´s the homeplace for more classical music. On the right you can see a paradoxical partner by the square. The cinemacentre with 14 cinemas. Makes "Hötorget" an always active area with loads of people.

It´s late and I need to sleep, but I will post some more pics of this tomorrow with a closeup on the statue you see in the middle. It´s of Orpheus, the greek tragic hero who through his music managed to salvage his wife from death but who lost her again in usual greek tragedy. More pics will be shown here
