The chamber music club Krinolin
The chamber music club Krinolin / Stina Jansson
The purpose of Krinolin is for classical chamber music to reach out to a wider and above all younger audience than it usually attracts to concert and opera houses today. Live high quality chamber music is offered in a relaxed social environment where you do not usually expect to hear classical music. The goal is to make more people aware of the amazing repertoire available in the traditional concert halls, and get more people to venture out to listen.
CD Deep Shadows Blue
The purpose is to raise interest in the sound of the Scandinavian guitar and for our special melodic cultural heritage with roots partially in Scanian soil. By completing a CD with newly written contemporary Swedish music for the guitar, spread Swedish contemporary guitar music internationally.
The project ascribes in part to the publication of a book (about 500 pp) entitled Analytical Variations. The book consists of seven independent texts, which have in common that different music analytical methods become the subject of critical review and independent application. The aim is to produce research results that have been developed over a long time. Both books can be seen as enlargements of the approaches to critical, but also constructive, musically scientific debate that characterizes the two volumes released in 2013 and 2015.

A Scanian Orfeo
The Lund Baroque Association / Johan Linderoth
Claudio Monteverdis “Orfeo” from 1604 is usually temporally thought of as the first work of opera. The work has never been performed in its entirety in Skåne. The Lund Baroque Association in collaboration with Höör Baroque plans to perform the opera in concert form in Kristianstad, Höör and Lund in 2018. In order to reinforce the dramatic event and facilitate the audience’s understanding of the work, a director / choreographer will be hired to work on lighting, and in collaboration with professional dancers to develop a choreography that reinforces key scenes.

Michaela is the only Swedish student flutist to be awarded a place on a prestigious educational programme in Copenhagen that admits only a maximum of two students per year.

Home is where the music is
The project “Home is where the music is” aims to work with Syrian chamber music groups operating in Sweden and Skåne in order to explore contemporary music from Syria and premiere it. During rehearsals before the concert, the participating musicians will keep a journal recording musical reflections on rehearsing the repertoire, but also personally describe their life situation in general as seen from the daily perspective of life as a musician in exile. The journal follows a thought process and acts as a key to understanding and getting to know the Syrian musical world on a deeper level.
