centennial, memorial, Sweden, Voxna


The Voxna events this year were on July 12th and 13th and were the "official opening" of the Jussi year. Stefan Olmars had arranged for us to hear the great mezzo Ingrid Tobiasson as well as Olle Perssona baritone known mostly for intelligent lieder singing- and tenor Nils Olsson, this year's JB Sallskapet prize winner. The young man is a big guy with a big voice, and quite a crowd pleaser, although one hopes that a greater sense of nuance will come with age and experience.
