Among the programs and the ensembles bookable with Anna for the season 2021-2022:
“BEETHOVEN ON BROADWOOD”:
2020 is Beethoven’s year and Anna is celebrating it with concert on her original English fortepiano Broadwood (1802), a model Beethoven owned himself. The concert is still bookable for next year, in duo or in trio with gut-stringed violin /voice. Guest-singers are (in order of appearance during 2020), stars such as Maria Keohane, Elin Rombo and Kristina Hammarström. Violinist is Maria Lindal, who has an international performing career.
“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.
Dan Laurin (recorders) and Anna go on touring 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 by the international press as a ‘telepathic’ duo, Anna and Dan’s concerts are the occasion for a ‘jam-session’ à la baroque and rhetorical esprit.
“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 May 2020. Both in her CD and in live concerts she performs these jewels of fantasy and virtuosity on harpsichord, original clavichord and original fortepiano.
“ANGEL’S VOICE – A DREAM ON FARINELLI”:
Brand new group and brand new program, with a rising young star, countertenor Nicolò Balducci, enthralling the audience in a musical journey around the world of the castrati and of Carlo Broschi, called FARINELLI. The concert is bookable as trio or with larger ensemble.
“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 this baroque-contemporary program with her fascinating, idiomatic style.
