Time flies! Another weekend of just lovely meetings with audience and co-musicians has passed! A weekend filled with both music for sparkling joy and for contemplative seriousness. I'm very lucky and I feel blessed to get the chance to express myself through all these divers ways of singing and making music!

Ingvar Lidholm (24 February 1921 - 17 October 2017)

The music by Ingvar Lidholm played an important role of my vocal education and of my understanding and knowledge of contemporary music! One of my first experiences of his significant and amazing tonal landscape was through his songs for voice and piano. Once entering the sound world by Ingvar, and when the colourful melody lines and close harmonies are all set in body and soul, the music stays forever.

    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
