Saxå Herrgård concert venue Saxå Herrgård concert venue
What a magic evening, yesterday night at Saxå Herrgård! The concert started at 22.00 and outside the windows the evening birds were singing during a beautiful sunset!
This was one of the last concerts of Saxå Kammarmusikfestival 2015, and to celebrate the 30 year anniversary of the festival, three first performances were given during the night. I was a part of two of these! The composer Anders Hillborg had for the occasion rearranged two songs to fit the festival ensemble. I sung Kväll (lyrics by Eva Dahlgren) with Peter Eriksson playing the viola! I also performed O dessa ögon, but this time with string quintet (Andrej Power, Patrik Swedrup, Peter Eriksson, Johannes Rostamo and Valur Pàlsson)!
Earlier in the program I had the honor singing a couple of songs by Jean Sibelius with pianist Martin Sturfält. Both songs with Swedish lyrics by Johan L Runeberg.

Yesterday I got to see beautiful Saxå Herrgård as well as Grythyttan again. Many years have passed since I was a part of Saxå Kammarmusikfestival, and it's a great honor being back!

I had some rehearsal time yesterday with wonderful pianist Martin Sturfält. Tonight we will do a couple of songs composed by Sibelius.
This afternoon I will meet the string quintet for rehearsal of the Anders Hillborg piece O dessa ögon. All songs will be performed during the late concert tonight at Saxå Herrgård!
Most welcome!!

Hannah Holgersson, Midsummer Eve Hannah Holgersson, Midsummer Eve
I had together with my wonderful pianist, as well as brother in law, Joakim Holgersson a wonderful evening yesterday in Otterstad Church (Kållandsö, Lidköping). We celebrated Midsummer with highlights from the classical music and the musical theatre, mixed with some jazz and folk music! The major theme was summer and love! The audience was delighted and responded with a standing ovation!
Midsummer Eve couldn't have had a better ending!

Wishing you all a lovely midsummer!

    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
