Kung Liljekonvalje (text: Gustav Fröding)


The vocal ensemble "Singer Pur" will celebrate its 25th performing jubilee in 2017. The first public performance of the ensemble on 8 March 1992 at a benefit concert at the Cologne Philharmonie laid the cornerstone for an international career. So far, the sextet has sung in over 50 countries and is considered one of Europe's leading a-cappella formations. Its high ranking is reflected by numerous honours, including the Bavarian State Prize for Music, the Caeciliaprijs and three Echo Klassik prizes. At the jubilee concert on 8 March 2017 at the Prince Regents' Theatre in Munich, the ensemble will present a programme showing the entire spectrum of its activities - ranging from works performed during the ensemble's early years to a world premiere.

Förvårskväll (text: Ragnar Jändel)


The CD features a.o. arrangements by Jan Sandström of improvised folk songs of the Sami people - whose singing is among the earliest continuing vocal traditions of Europe - but also recent works like the sixteen-part Kosijat (The Suitors; 2001) by one of the best-known contemporary composers in Finland, Jaakko Mäntyjärvi. The final piece on the cd, Muoayiayaoum is a phonetic formula, a sequence of vowels which open and close.

This is the purpose of the twelve-minute piece, as the composer Anders Hillborg ventures in search of the greatest possible precision in terms of timbre, pulse and dynamics. The level of vocal virtuosity that Peter Dijkstra elicits from his singers of The Swedish Radio Choir, collectively, is breathtaking and his cd ‘Nordic Sounds 1’ with music of Sandström as well as his most recent Poulenc recording ‘Figure Humaine’, received great critical acclaim and important awards!

“Traditional Swedish folksongs are interwoven with newer choral works” BBC Music Magazine, December 2012 ****

“This is such a choral feast that one can only shake one's head in wonderment that such lovely music is so little known outside Scandinavia. The Swedish Radio Choir's reputation for flawless singing is as solid as ever and, under Peter Dijkstra's direction, it has become a powerful though flexible instrument capable of tremendously warm and gilded singing.” Gramophone Magazine, November 2012

“The timbral and rhythmic precision of their performances does not prevent the singing from projecting a genuinely human warmth. The choir is responsive to the wide variety of styles represented here; one senses the singers' enjoyment.” International Record Review, December 2012

Anders Widmark (piano)

Allmänna Sången, Cecilia Rydinger Alin

The choir featured on this disc, Allmänna Sången, is a student choir with a history going back for more than 175 years. A collaboration with Swedish jazz pianist Anders Widmark lends unusual colours to settings of ancient folk chorales (I Himmelen) and traditional harvest songs (Slåttervisa), as well as to classics from the treasure of Swedish choral music such as Stenhammar’s Three Choral Songs and Alfvén’s Evening (‘Aftonen’).

“At first glance this might seem a curious concept, Swedish folksongs as sung - exceptionally so, let me say straightaway - mostly unaccompanied by a modest chorus through some of which jazz improvisations weave a separate counterpoint. … a fine and varied programme, beautifully recorded in a spacious but not over-resonant acoustic. As a programme - and this is definitely a disc to be played through in one sitting - the total effect is greater than the sum of its parts.” Gramophone Magazine, March 2009

“Their climax is Lars Johan Werle's wonderful, testing setting of Petrarch's 126th Canzone, which opens in a Gesualdo-like style and gradually assimilates more modern elements before returning to the opening simplicity. This is how all contemporary choral music should be sung.” Gramophone Magazine, September 2006
