Stockholm Chamber Music: Greetings from Italy
Location: City Museum, auditorium floor 2
Price: 100–275 SEK
Ensemble Vox Musarum led by soprano Noora Karhuluoma interprets Johann Helmich Roman and his era.
Stockholm Chamber Music takes residence in City Museum!
The second concert of the series is a musical story with composer Johann Helmich Roman, “the father of Swedish music,” in focus. Here we get to know the society and aesthetics of Stockholm in the 1600s and 1700s. Ensemble Vox Musarum with Noora Karhuluoma performs the works on authentic instruments, in historical costumes.
During his many trips to Italy, Roman met many of the most famous musicians and composers of the time. During this concert, we have the opportunity to get acquainted with the composers who influenced him and the musical style that he brought back to Stockholm.
You will also experience a world premiere of composer Stefan Klaverdal’s work based on J.H. Roman’s music. The composer himself writes: “I want to use Roman’s music as a starting point and, with different composition techniques, filter fragments from his music to create something completely new.”
Soprano Noora Karhuluoma has a lyrical voice with an unusually wide range and a pearly clear sound. She has studied at opera and music schools in Helsinki, Stockholm, Brussels, and Gothenburg and has also specialized as a lieder singer. Noora made her debut in 2015 at Malmö Opera as Donna Anna in Mozart’s “Don Giovanni” and is a frequently hired oratorio soloist. Noora has performed with, among others, Opus X (Finland), Camerata Nordica, and Cappella Strumentale del Sacro Monte Calvario (Italy). Since 2016, she has chosen to focus on chamber music that includes early music, romances, oratorios, and opera in concert format. She has sung with various orchestras and ensembles in Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Norway, Estonia, and Italy.
