Soprano

Mojca Erdmann

Clarinet

Martin Fröst

Martin Fröst discovered the clarinet at the age of nine. Undoubtedly one of the most outstanding wind instrumentalists of today, Martin Fröst’s musical highlights include debuts with renowned orchestras such as the Concertgebouw Orchester, the Orchestre National de France, the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, the Wiener Symphoniker and the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra.

As a chamber musician, Fröst regularly collaborates with such musicians as Leif Ove Andsnes, Janine Jansen, Roland Pöntinen and Christian Tetzlaff at international concert halls and festivals. He is also Artistic Director of the ›Vinterfest‹ chamber music festival in Mora, Sweden, and of the International Chamber Music Festival in Stavanger, Norway.

Keen to expand the existing clarinet concerto repertoire, Fröst has personally championed contemporary composers, premiering works by Krysztof Penderecki and Kalevi Aho, among others. Since playing the main role in Wilfried Hiller and Michael Ende’s opera ›Der Rattenfänger‹, for which he was nominated as 1995/96 Interpreter of the Year by the magazine Opernwelt, the exceptional Swedish clarinettist has repeatedly experimented with new ideas about how to combine elements of drama, pantomime and dance in his performance presentation.
