Swedish vocal stars with pianist Magnus Svensson.
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 soprano Ida Falk Winland and bass Henning von Schulman.
Acclaimed Swedish soprano Ida Falk Winland has performed the lead roles in Rigoletto, The Magic Flute and Xerxes at the Royal Swedish Opera in Stockholm, in Pajazzo, Norma and The Marriage of Figaro at Göteborg Opera, and in Così fan tutte at the Opéra National de Paris. She has also performed at La Scala in Milan, Covent Garden in London and the festival in Glyndebourne. Falk Winland is also a frequently engaged concert soloist and has worked with conductors such as Esa-Pekka Salonen, Daniel Harding and Valery Gergiev.
Bass Henning von Schulman was a member of the soloist ensemble at Det Kongelige Opera in Copenhagen from 2013–17, where he sang the lead roles in The Marriage of Figaro, The Magic Flute, Don Giovanni and in Verdi’s Macbeth. He is an in-demand soloist for oratorios such as Mozart and Verdi’s Requiems, and he has also performed several concert programmes with Schubert’s Winterreise and Mussorgsky’s Songs and Dances of Death. In 2016, von Schulman won the Birgit Nilsson Scholarship.
Versatile pianist Magnus Svensson specialises in the art of the lied, and for the last several seasons he has served as artistic director of the lied subscription. He has also held concert series at the Royal Palace and performed solos with the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra and more. In addition to concert performances in the Nordic region and elsewhere in Europe, he has also played in Russia and the US.
