Katarina Karnéus appears frequently on the greatest opera and concert stages worldwide. Since 2012, she has worked with the Göteborg Opera, where she has performed numerous acclaimed roles, including Brangäne in Wagner’s Tristan and Isolde and Orpheus in Gluck’s Orpheus and Eurydice. She has performed at Konserthuset Stockholm several times before, most recently in Arnold Schoenberg’s Erwartung in the Double Drama programme staged in January 2019.

Now Karnéus returns with Edward Elgar’s Sea Pictures, a suite of five songs to texts associated with water, by five different writers. They takes of from a slumbering sea to the haven of Capri, continuing with an extatic morning sabbath at sea, down to the corals and finally joining a swimmer in stormy waters. 

Joseph Haydn composed his twelve last symphonies in England, the so-called London Symphonies. Among these, we find the Symphony No 103 from 1795. It has been nicknamed The Drumroll, and you can understand why ... 

The concert will begin with Victoria Borisova-Ollas’ imaginative Wings of the Wind, inspired by psalm 104 from the Book of Psalms: He makes the clouds his chariot, and rides on the wings of the wind.
