As part of the opening night of the Höör Baroque Festival 2013 a late evening concert was given in Höör Church hosted by Vassilis Bolonassos, familiar from the Swedish Radio with "Alltid på en söndag" (Always on a Sunday) and "Notturno".

From Sundsvall to Malmö
...from Britten to Purcell
These past few days have all started with early train departures. From Stockholm up to Sundsvall on Tuesday, on Wednesday morning back to Stockholm, and today from Stockholm down to Malmö. Except for having great musical meetings and concerts I get to see the beautiful Sweden om my way!=)
Today I landed in Malmö and did a private event with music by G Fauré and G Puccini among others. I then went directly up to Höör for rehearsal of the concert of tomorrow night, as a part of the Höör Baroque Festival 2013.

Larsson and Hillborg
...music for summertime in S:t Matteus Church
The masterpiece God in Disguise by Lars-Erik Larsson (music) and Hjalmar Gullberg (lyrics) is very special and dear to me! It was one of the first pieces I did when playing the cello in the Höör Chamber Orchestra a long time ago, with Viggo Edén as the conductor. Since then the music reminds me of my childhood, of my musical developement, of the lovely season of the upcoming Summer and of dear friends from that time in my life!
A new musical experience for me during the Summer concert in S:t Matteus Church tonight was the piece O dessa ögon (Oh these eyes) composed 2011 for soprano solo and strings by Anders Hillborg to lyrics by Gunnar Ekelöf. The audience was moved by this breathtaking piece where the lyrics and the melody are put together in one long phrase from the beginning until the end! I'm really looking forward to do this wonderful music soon again!
