Welcome to Stockholm Early Music Festival

Dear early music-lovers!


Welcome to an intense amorous encounter between audience and music, caried by the wings of history! A national stage for early music - something that SEMF has been advocating for over a decade - is still missing, but in the meantime the largest festival of the genre in the Nordic countries is taking wing for the sixteenth time leading the way ahead. Under the soft early summer light of the Old Town (Gamla stan), an unbounded music celebration under the sign of longing, where you can be reassured that all old is becoming new.


Ever new artists at SEMF! Europe is approaching Sweden during six days. Take a chance on: the rising star of Norway Aksel Rykkvin, world class vocal ensembles such as the Belgian Huelgas Ensemble, the French Ensemble Organum, and the English Swingle Singers. Discover Italian Renaissance women composers, antique lyres, and Sweden's oldest mass. Pergolesi's beautiful Stabat mater is perfomed by Barokkanerne, and Ale Möller is celebrating the national day of Sweden along with us – it is never too late for Swedish early music!
