Stöd körens nya skivinspelning våren 2019!

Ljusfälten

Jag har krafter. Jag fruktar ingenting.

Ljus är himlen för mig.

Går världen under -

jag går icke under.

Mina ljusa horisonter stå

över jordens stormande natt.

Träden fram ur det gåtfulla ljusfält!

Oböjlig väntar min kraft.

Edith Södergran, ur Septemberlyran 1918

Under året 2019 planerar Uppsala Vokalensemble att under ledning av Sofia Ågren spela in en skiva med skivbolaget Footprint Records. Repertoaren för skivan kommer att bygga på programmet för körens sommarkonsert 2018, då vi hade förmånen att samarbeta med  tonsättaren Matthew Peterson från Minnesota och nyckelharpisten Josefina Paulson som innehar världsmästerskapstiteln på sitt instrument. Uppsala Vokalensemble har vid flera tillfällen framfört nyskriven musik. I samarbete med Footprint Records spelade kören 2016 in CD-skivan UrVerk (https://open.spotify.com/artist/1UgzPZJxv125rBRDuQaTSP) med musik som vi har uruppfört. Vår kommande skiva utgår från Matthew Petersons nyskrivna verk Ljusfälten, en körsvit med sex tonsatta dikter av den finlandssvenska poeten Edith Södergran. Sviten är skriven för Uppsala Vokalensemble. Den sista av dikterna i körsviten bär namnet ”Ljusfälten” och har fått inspirera titeln till verket och det övriga repertoarvalet, som är färgat av klanger ur den nordiska sommarnaturen. 

På skivan kommer även nyckelharpisten Josefina Paulson att medverka, och folkmusiken möter den klassiska körtraditionen i en nyskapande symbios. Matthew Peterson har också komponerat ett särskilt stycke för kör och nyckelharpa där Edith Södergrans dikt ”Sommar i bergen” vävs in melodin från en traditionell västmanländsk polska. Även Josefina Paulson har komponerat en polska tillägnad kören där texten från den svenske poeten Tomas Tranströmers dikt ”Den stora gåtan” ackompanjerar nyckelharpans resonansklanger. 

Vi känner oss övertygade om att dessa tonsatta dikter har potential att bli framtida körklassiker och vill dela med oss av musiken till fler lyssnare. Välkommen att bli en del av projektet genom att stödja oss ekonomiskt. 

Ovan kan du se ett filmklipp där kören, Matthew Peterson och Josefina Paulson presenterar projektet närmare.

Light-patches 

 I have powers. I fear nothing.

 Light is heaven to me. 

If the world comes to an end – I shall not perish. 

My light horizons stand over the stormy night of the Earth. 

Step out of the mysterious light-patch! 

Unyielding my power waits.  

Edith Södergran: The September Lyre (1918)


Support the choir's new recording in Spring 2019!

In Spring 2019, Uppsala Vokalensemble, conducted by Sofia Ågren, plans to make a recording together with Footprint Records. The repertoire will be based on the choir’s summer concert 2018, when we had the privilege to collaborate with the composer Matthew Peterson from Minnesota and the of keyed fiddle player Josefina Paulson (world champion in 2016). Uppsala Vokalensemble has at several occasions performed newly composed music, for instance the choir recently released the record UrVerk with music that the choir first performed. (https://open.spotify.com/artist/1UgzPZJxv125rBRDuQaTSP). 

Our coming record includes Matthew Peterson’s new composition Ljusfälten, composed especially for Uppsala Vokalensemble. It is a suite of six parts for choir in which poems by the poet Edith Södergran have been set to music. The last piece in the suite, called “Light patches”, has inspired the entire theme of the record, a repertoire colored by tones that captures the essence of Nordic summer. 

In the record repertoire, the folkmusic of the keyed fiddle player Josefina Paulson  is combined with the classical Swedish choir tradition in a creative symbiosis. Mathew Peterson has also composed a particular piece for choir and keyed fiddle in which the poem “Summer in the mountain” is wowed into the melody of a traditional polska from the region of Västmanland. The record also contains a polska composed by Josefina Paulson as a tribute to the choir, where the poem "The Great Enigma" of the Swedish poet Tomas Tranströmer accompanies the timbre of the keyed fiddle. 

We are convinced that the poems of Edith Södergran will become future classics on the choir scene and we would like to share the music to a broader audience. Welcome to become a part of this project by supporting us!  Above on this page you will find a movie where Mathew Peterson and Josefina Paulson present the project more in detail.
