Welcome to an evening in House of Sweden filled with Swedish National-Romantic Music, performed by Armen Shaomian, pianist, and Janet Hopkins, mezzo-soprano. Renowned Swedish pianist Armen Shaomian and special guest mezzo-soprano Janet Hopkins will present a lecture-recital on the music of Swedish composers Wilhelm Peterson-Berger and Wilhelm Stenhammar. The program will include solo piano works and vocal pieces in Swedish. Selected works have been chosen to define and illustrate National Romanticism and to extract from each composer’s body of works the characteristics of their folk music influences.
