Last week I recorded the first six flute sonatas by Martinus Ræhs together with Anna Paradiso, harpsichord and fortepiano, Mats Olofsson, cello and Jonas Nordberg, theorbo. The recording will be out this summer on the German label, Arcantus. Stay tuned!
This spring I have created a children’s performance together with the singer, Inger Øvrebø Uberg. The 25 minutes long performance is about grief and how to handle the fact that things and people can disappear and not always come back. The production was made together with the actor Rolf Christianson and on stage with Inger and me are Emma Fagerström and Yngvild Ruud! Take a look at the trailer below:
In February I had the honor of premiering two new pieces by Johan Blixt and Gustav Lindsten. In this short video below you can see the result. You are also very welcome to consult the website of this new collaboration.
Together with Inger Uberg, Emma Fagerström, and Yngvild Ruud a new children’s concert is taking form! We just received our first funding from Nordisk Kulturfond and this concert about losing something or someone will see the light next year. We are looking very much forward to working with this!
A project come to it’s conclusion with me performing two new commissioned concerts for the Eagle recorder by Swedish composers Johan Blixt and Gustav Lindsten. The concert will be given twice first with the premier February 13th and secondly at Sunday February 17th at Skeppsholmen in the center of Stockholm. The String quintet consists of handpicked musicians based in Stockholm.
I will be playing Johan Blixt’s Konversationer which is in eight movements for Eagle recorder, string quintet and electronics and Gustav Lindsten’s Deus ex machina for the same ensemble.
Two concerts will be given, the first at Wednesday February 13th and the second Sunday February 17th at Kulturfyren at the beautiful island of Skeppsholmen in the middle of Stockholm. The concerts are kindly supported by Föreningen för Svenska Tonsättare, Helge Ax:son Johnsons Stiftelse and Gertrude och Ivar Philipsons Stiftelse.
This weekend I won the first prize of the EAR-ly competition 2018 for instrumentalists and singers from the Nordic and Baltic countries. The competition is organized by NORDEM and I am very happy and honoured to have been awarded the first prize. The jury words were that Clara Guldberg Ravn won because of her “varied and convincing playing, the good dramatic line in her program, and the clearly professional level of her whole approach”.
This spring I completed my studies at the Royal College of Music in Stockholm and what could be more fitting than celebrate it with the Swedish composer, Johan Helmich Roman, and a movement from one of his amazing flute sonatas. Here live together with Jonas Nordberg, archlute, Stina Petersson, cello and Anna Paradiso, harpsichord.
