September-December 2017: Lebanon, Rome and royal places

These past months were filled with different programs and new adventures. In September, Anna was one of the two special musician-guests, together with her husband Dan Laurin, at a closed event at the royal court of Sweden, in the presence of the king, the queen and the hereditary princess. In this occasion, she performed music of JH Roman and participated to the reception at the king’s table. She played one more time a concert at the baroque festival “Alessandro Stradella” close to Rome and she performed a solo-concert in Stockholm with French baroque music. During October-November, she performed at the harpsichord and at the organ a series of concerts across Sweden, organized by “Operabyrån”, a Swedish organization that works with baroque opera. In this case, the program contained  music written by Italian nuns between the 9th and the 17th century. In the same period, she took off for Lebanon, where she gave a very successful concert at the festival “Les Musicales de Baabdath”, sponsored by the Swedish Embassy in Beirut, with her baroque group Paradiso Musicale, and she gave master-classes at the conservatory in Bcharre and at the conservatory in Beirut. With Dan Laurin as conductor of the baroque orchestra Höör Barock, she also undertook an exciting new BIS recording, which is a premiere, containing for the first time the whole Golovin-music by JH Roman, commissioned in 1728 by the Russian ambassador in Sweden, Golovin. The Russian Embassy was also the place where Anna gave a concert the 20th of December, together with the renown Russian violinist Mikhail Symonian and his ensemble. She was also busy with the audition of more than a 100 singers from all over for next Summer “Vadstena-Academy” where she will perform in and coach for a French opera-ballet. The year ends with yet another royal place, the Royal Chapel in the royal castle of Stockholm, where the 26th of December she performs in a concert dedicated to the great Swedish composer JH Roman.
