European Day of Early Music
Maria Keohane - Soprano with ensemble – From Sweden with Bach
If J.S. Bach had lived in Sweden, he might have written traditional Swedish folk music as chorals from Dalarna. Art music and folk music – two multifaceted worlds connected through bridges of beauty and virtuosity.
The soprano Maria Keohane explores arias from Bach´s cantatas and seeks to reflect them in the Swedish folk music tradition – both a challenge and a source of inspiration. Maria is accompanied by several prestigious musicians:
Nils-Erik Sparf, baroque violin, Mime Yamahiro Brinkman, baroque cello and Magnus Kjellsson, organ and cembalo. A Swedish birthday greeting to Johann Sebastian on European Day of Early Music!
