Welcome to Stockholm Early Music Festival! June 2-6 2011

From the programme:

Festival fever! Sweden’s largest international event for early music celebrates ten years of quality and vitality. An never-ceasing flow of extraordinary known and unknown music from antiquity to the baroque, performed for a steadily growing audience. SEMF 2011 invites you to an experience that stirs the imagination, reflecting the scope and diversity of early music – in perfect concord with the evocative atmosphere of the Old Town.

A selection from this year’s festive musical spectrum: master conductor Andrew Parrott and the Swedish Radio Choir re-create the polychoral splendour of Venice’s San Marco cathedral, and Sequentia brings the magical musical world of the Icelandic Edda to life. Enjoy high baroque with Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin and musical humour with Barokksolistene in “The Early Joke“. Rolf Lislevand and Arianna Savall with ensemble improvise around fiery Spanish baroque dances, while delicate viol consort Phantasm explore English harmonies. Also, songs of the medieval French troubadours, Polish baroque treasures, early Persian music…
