The Eric Ericson Chamber Choir was founded in 1945 by Eric Ericson, and since then it has taken a central role in the Swedish and international music scenes. Today the choir’s repertoire is incredibly broad and for generations of Swedish composers, “the Chamber Choir” was the ideal ensemble, with its typical Nordic sound and virtuosity. Internationally, the Eric Ericson Chamber Choir is among the most renowned professional ensembles. The Eric Ericson Chamber Choir and Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra have enjoyed a close partnership since 2003.
At this anniversary concert, the choir will tackle Claudio Monteverdi’s (1567–1643) Maria Vespers – Vespro della Beata Vergine. This immortal masterpiece was composed in 1610 and is a mighty, melodic, colourful and sometimes painfully beautiful tribute to the holy virgin. This music from the transitional period between the Renaissance and Baroque eras has spectacular choral parts and sections for one or several solo voices. The Eric Ericson Chamber Choir is led by its chief conductor Fredrik Malmberg. Guest soloists and the Wallström Baroque Ensemble will also participate.
The concert will take place with an audience of maximum 50 people in the hall. The costumised seating plan allows only single seats.
