During a private event in Eric Ericsonhallen, Skeppsholmen Stockholm, the Requiem by W A Mozart was performed earlier today. I had the honor doing the solo quartet together with Maria Sanner (alto), Mathias Zachariassen (tenor) and John Erik Eleby (bass).  Hedvig Eleonora Kammarkör was singing and members of the Royal Swedish Orchestra playing. Conductor of the day was Pär Fridberg.

The past weeks I have been preparing and rehearsing the upcoming concerts with music by Gorecki and by Hillborg. Parallel with my own rehearsals I have been coaching and preparing my student singers for their concerts with both sacred music (by Bach, Händel, Vivaldi, Verdi and Mozart) and secular music (by Schumann, Mendelssohn and Brahms).

Tomorrow night I will meet the full orchestra for the sorrowful music by Gorecki. Looking forward to this rehearsal!

What a joyful moment to hear the audience singing along to the true Swedish melodies in Förklädd gud (Disguised god) by Lars-Erik Larsson! This beloved piece was performed during the Celebration Concert of Stockholms stifts kyrkosångsförbund 80 years, yesterday in Hedvig Eleonora kyrka, Stockholm. As a beautiful match Bön till Solen (Prayer to the Sun) by Jan Sandström was preceding Disguised god.
I had the honor working with brilliant colleagues; Karl-Magnus Fredriksson (barytone), Marie Göranzon (reciting), Marie Rosenmir and Sonny Jansson (conductors). Stockholms Symfonirokester playing and choirs from Stockholms stift singing!

The last concert of the tour BACK TO BACH with the Eric Ericson Chamber Choir and conductor Fredrik Malmberg was held today at the same venue as last night; in Vårdklockans kyrka, Visby. Having our dear Eric Ericson in memory when singing, it was hard some time to hold back the tears...

One of the great moments of this tour has been performing the expressive and fantastic piece by Karin Rehnqvist; Davids Nimm. Big thanks to my wonderful co-singers Helena Ströberg and Sara Niklasson!

Today the tour BACK TO BACH arrived in Visby, Gotland! It was a true joy doing our concert program in Vårdklockans kyrka, the church in which Eric Ericson grew up! The music by I Lidholm, Å Malmfors, L Norman, K Rehnqvist, T Jennefelt, S-E Bäck and J S Bach honored the memory of Eric!

The tour BACK TO BACH continued today at Ytterjärna Kulturhus. The Eric Ericson Chamber Choir was the secret guest artist during the lunch concert.

After this appreciated performance we ended the tour day at Sundbybergs kyrka. Together with Sundbybergs Motettkör (and conductor Marcus Edgar) we did a mixed program, in which our "Back to Bach" music was integrated.

Tomorrow the tour goes on to Visby, Gotland!

The concert was also a co-operation with Trollbäckens Oratoriekör and their conductor Susanne Sand.
The spectacular piece Davids Nimm by Karin Rehnqvist was part of the program, and I enjoyed very much doing this amazing music with our new trio; Helena Ströberg, Sara Niklsson and me!

    Fantastisk Blogg du har. Vad kul att följa dig här. Lycka till framöver, kram

    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
