What a week! So much love during concerts arranged to honor Valentine's day and to honor love for a fellow human being, the love for nature and the love to God and eternal love.

Last Sunday I participated in the premier of the concert Song of Songs (Sångernas sång) in Falkenbergs kyrka. I had the honor doing the music piece Nattens Längtan, by composer Kjell Perder (to lyrics by Bo Setterlind) that was written for my final music examination at the Stockholm Royal College of Music. The music is composed as a duet for voice and cello. Anna Stina Mühlhäuser played brilliantly in Falkenberg as well as in Årsta kyrka!
The concert production Song of Songs was also performed in Årsta kyrka, Stockholm, later this week. The piece Hög Visa by Kjell Perder (with lyrics from the Song of Songs) was part of the program and composed for two female voices and strings. It was a great pleasure performing with soprano Tove Dahlberg and Ensemble Musica di Costiera, all conducted by Kjell Perder himself.

In addition to the concerts Song of Songs, I have had two concerts (a lunch concert in Immanuelskyrkan, Stockholm and en evening concert in Grindtorpskyrkan, Täby) with my music students from Bromma Folkhögskola. Together with pianist and teacher Göran Nygren we have performed a mixed concert program with music and lyrics on the Love theme, in which I have contributed with music by Edvard Grieg, Gunnar de Frumerie, Ennio Morricone, Roger Quilter, Franz Lehár, Frederick Loewe and Leonard Bernstein.

A warm and big thank you to all musicians and people involved in the concerts this passed week. You are amazing and fantastic! Love greetings to you all!
