I feel so honored being a part of the Jan Johansson tribute yesterday night at Berwaldhallen! Another soldout concert during Östersjöfestivalen / Baltic Sea Festival 2018.
The audience was enthusiastic, listening to highlights from the music treasure of Jan Johansson, but also to discover some of his seldom performed pieces.

Revival of the music by Jan Johansson during rehearsal! Georg Riedel and Lennart Åberg, music direction.

Enjoyed the rehearsal yesterday with fabulous musicians, perparing the Jan Johansson tribute on Saturday, at Berwaldhallen.
I'm going to be a part of the piece "Ljus tungt som bly".
Musical directors are Georg Riedel and Lennart Åberg.

For more than 30 years, the legendary “Radiojazzgruppen” assembled the Swedish jazz elite, recorded dozens of albums and worked with the world’s leading musicians and composers. Among the many prominent musicians were Lennart Åberg and Georg Riedel who, for this first Baltic Sea Festival jazz concert, have gathered both old and new stars on the jazz firmament.

    Hannah - Even though I am fairly well versed in all sorts of classical music, I have never heard of you (or Anders Hillborg) before, I'm sorry, but heard you singing O dessa ögon this morning on BBC Radio 3 (with Sakari Oramo) and was absolutely transfixed. An amazing composition by Hillborg, but an even more amazing voice of yours, with - especially towards the end - those near-, below- and beyond- octave leaps sung with absolute security, sharpness and clarity, and with a wonderful interplay of absence and presence of vibrato. What a beautiful, transcendent sound! Thank you so much! :-) :-)

    Hejsan Hannah,

    Vill gärna tacka för gårdagens uppvisning i Matteuskyrkan. Det var en upplevelse att få vara med om detta och något av det vackraste jag har hört.
    Fantastiskt samspel mellan dig och orkestern, och jag satt som tur var bra till precis framför dig och kunde också SE dig sjunga. Så vackert! Tack för den gåshuden!
    Lev väl,
    Anders
