Bring Johan Hugosson's 'Made in Sweden' Concert to London.

Made In Sweden - CD Launch & Concert - 2nd April, The Swedish Church, London

In May 2016 I performed a concert at the Palladium, Malmö, with percussionist Måns Block and the Vindla String Quartet. A year later and I'm bringing this same concert and the resulting recording to London.

European, and indeed world politics, have shifted considerably in these last 12 months and I feel now, more than ever, it is important for artists and musicians to celebrate cultural difference, to share and exchange their ideas freely and to find common ground and compassion through music. 

"Cultural exchange through the arts is essential and music is my currency."

I am Swedish, my wife is Estonian. We both live in and love London for its diversity and vibrance. I want to celebrate this with a concert. 'Made In Sweden' presents a musical journey across Europe. It features ‘Double Pulse’, an explosive duo consisting of myself (piano) and Måns Block (percussion) as well as the stunning chamber music ensemble the ‘Vindla String Quartet’.

The Swedish Church in London is booked for 2nd April and the musicians are standing by ready to fly in! With your support we can bring 'Made in Sweden' to London.

“Johan Hugosson is a national treasure”

Made In Sweden CD

Recorded for Swedish TV at Malmo’s exquisite Palladium last spring 'Made In Sweden' is also presented as a live soundtrack album featuring Måns Block and the ‘Vindla String Quartet’. A new selection of my recent compositions; modern classical music infused with powerful rhythms and seductive harmonies.
