Soprano Miah Persson performs in the world’s leading opera houses and is also highly active in concert settings. Her specialities include Mozart’s operas, as well as the role of Sophie in Richard Strauss’ Rosenkavalier and Anne Trulove in Stravinsky’s the Rake’s Progress. Her discography is extensive and she has worked with conductors such as René Jacobs, Marc Minkowski and Iván Fischer.
We will hear her with pianist Magnus Svensson here, partly in a repertoire one typically associates her with, but also in late-Romantic, tension-filled music by Alban Berg and Alexander von Zemlinsky.
Magnus Svensson is a versatile musician who specialises in the art of lied. Magnus Svensson has appeared on most major concert stages in Sweden, in addition to regular concerts in the US and several European countries.
