Standing ovations for Lisa Larsson at Concertgebouw

Garden of Devotion On YouTube

Recently Swedish soprano Lisa Larsson received standing ovations at Concertgebouw, Amsterdam, in two sold out concerts when she gave the Dutch premiere of Martinsson's "Garden of Devotion" (Tagore) for soprano and string orchestra, together with the Netherlands CO and the artistic director and concertmaster, Gordan Nikolič.

The two concerts form the first step of three in an exciting collaboration with Larsson/NCO/Nikolič. Next step will be a CD-portrait of Martinsson's music and the third step will be a Nordic tour during 2018/2019. This is the third piece by Martinsson that Larsson brings to Concertgebouw. The two former pieces were "Ich denke Dein..." with the Netherlands PO/Marc Albrecht during Martinsson's Composer in Residence-ship with Netherlands PO and CO, and "Songs on Poems by Emily Dickinson" for soprano and piano with Swedish pianist Roland Pöntinen, ending their Made in Sweden tour.
