The Lied Concert Subscription is now in its sixth season. Once again, up close in Grünewald Hall, we will get to see stars from the opera and concert stages of the world. Pianist Magnus Svensson brings to the stage a long line of today’s most acclaimed singers, and at this concert we will get to see and hear soprano Yana Kleyn and tenor Joachim Bäckström.
Russiano soprano Yana Kleyn (replacing the soprano announced earlier, Elin Rombo) has in recent years done Mimi in Puccini's La Bohème and Liú in Puccini's Turandot, both at the Royal Opera in Stockholm. She has performed in a number of European opera houses and also interpreted Desdemona in Verdi's Otello at the Savonlinna Opera Festival.
Joachim Bäckström has sung Tamino in Mozart’s The Magic Flute at the Copenhagen Opera House and debuted in that same role at the Royal Swedish Opera in Stockholm. He has appeared in roles such as Don José in Carmen at the Royal Danish Theatre in Copenhagen, at the Finnish National Opera in Helsinki, and at the Malmö Opera and Opera Østfold in Norway. His many roles at the Malmö Opera have included Des Grieux in Massenet’s Manon, Rodolfo in Puccini’s La Bohème and Romeo in Gounod’s Roméo et Juliette.
