June 4th: “Tidig Musik”, the Swedish magazine of early music interviews Anna on her new recording. In this interview, in her last answer, she tries also to respond very shortly to the view that teachers, international musicians and even male music-leaders are all figures that might threaten the well-being of other musicians (especially when young and female, as it seems from some complaints in the press). Anna tells us way she thinks this is a dangerous way to think, as an artist, and why people who know more are not to be feared.
Due to the situation in the world, Anna’s concerts during Spring 2020 are under re-scheduling / changes. Stay tuned and, above all, stay strong!
