European Day of Early Music

Maria Keohane - Soprano with ensemble – From Sweden with Bach

Friday 21 March 2014 19:30 - 20:30 The German Church

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!
