Among the programs and the ensembles bookable with Anna for the season 2020-2021:
“BEETHOVEN ON BROADWOOD”:
2020 is Beethoven’s year and Anna celebrates it on her original English fortepiano Broadwood (1802). Beethoven himself owned a Broadwood … The concert is bookable in duo or trio with two international performers: soprano Elin Rombo and violinist Maria Lindal. Unique opportunity.
“ETT MUSIKALISKT TIDSFÖRDRIF”:
From 1789 until 1834 the music journal “Musikaliskt Tidsfördrif” published all sorts of ‘music hits’ from Sweden and abroad popular at the time, in various arrangements, to be played at home with friends. The acclaimed period ensemble Paradiso Musicale (defined by Gramophone as ‘Soloists with an insight to burn’) explores this fascinating and often completely unknown repertoire. Anna plays on harpsichord, original Swedish clavichord and original Swedish fortepiano. This one too is a rather unique concert.
Dan Laurin (recorders) and Anna go on touring around the world with different programs, from baroque to contemporary music, with special care for little known Swedish and Neapolitan baroque music, such as that composed by J.H. Roman and his friend L.Leo … Defined several times by the international press as a ‘telepathic’ duo, Anna and Dan’s intention is to create a joyful ‘jam-session’ at every occasion.
“PARADISO PLAYS PARADISI”:
The Neapolitan composer Pietro Domenico Paradisi (1707-1791) was very popular in his own time, especially thanks to his harpsichord sonatas. Anna’s recording of these pieces for BIS well be released in Spring 2020. Both in her CD and in live concerts she performs these jewels of fantasy and virtuosity on harpsichord, original clavichord and original fortepiano.
Brand new group and brand new program, with a rising young star, countertenor Nicolò Balducci, and an international ensemble of Swedish and Italian baroque musicians, guiding the audience in a musical journey around the peculiar world of castrati and of Carlo Broschi called FARINELLI …
“THE BRIGHT FUTURE ENSEMBLE & HELENA TULVE”:
Another brand new and extremely original ensemble with international Estonian, Italian and Swedish musicians, with instruments you never saw performing together before: recorder, theremin, analogic synthesizers, Estonian kanel, harpsichord … and the eminent composer Helena Tulve contributing to a baroque-contemporary program with her distinguished style.
