Wednesday 22 January 2020 19.00Ends approximately 21.00
For the lied concert subscription, now in its seventh season, pianist Magnus Svensson has invited an exclusive group of musicians from the world’s opera and concert stages, and offers us the opportunity to experience their vocal art through intimate encounters in Grünewald Hall. At this concert, we will hear the four soloists comprising the Sankt Eriksolisterna vocal ensemble.
The Sankt Eriksolisterna perform both as an a cappella quartet and in major concert halls with orchestral accompaniment. In 2016 the quartet performed in Spain at Palacio de Festivales de Cantabria and the following year, they were invited to sing Italian madrigals at the Ton Koopman Festival Itinéraire Baroque en Périgord in France. The four members are each well-established soloists individually in opera houses and on concert stages in Sweden and abroad.
Soprano Elin Skorup participated in Folkoperan’s staging of Philip Glass’ opera Satyagraha, and has sung at the Drottningholm Palace Theatre. Mezzo-soprano Anna Zander is a member of the Swedish Radio Choir, and regularly works as a soloist throughout Europe. Tenor Mikael Stenbaek is primarily active as a concert vocalist and sings, among others, with the symphony orchestras in Stavanger and Trondheim. Lars Johansson Brissman, baritone, debuted with the Royal Swedish Opera in 2004. He has also sung at Drottningholm Palace Theatre and Folkoperan.
Versatile pianist Magnus Svensson specialises in the art of the lied, and for the last several seasons he has served as host of the lied subscription. In addition to concert performances in the Nordic region and elsewhere in Europe, he has also played in Russia and the US.
