Violin colors from the past

June 28 @ 16:00 - 17:00 UTC+0

In this program the two violin players Isolde Callisto Puts (Netherlands/Sweden) and Rebecka Karlsson (Sweden), present a palette of violin music.
In a various mixture you get to know traditional Icelandic dance music, specific pieces from small Swedish villages, as well as pieces by famous baroque composers, music that draws musical paintings in many shades. Welcome to join a travel to past times through colorful violin music!
Rebecka Karlsson – violin
Rebecka has studied violin with Anna Lindal and baroque violin with Ann Wallström at the Royal College of Music in Stockholm, Sweden. She has been an exchange student at the Conservatorio di Musica G. B. Martini in Bologna, Italy, where she studied violin with maestro Carlo Ricci, and has studied baroque violin at the master level with Professor Anton Steck at the Staatliche Hochschule für Musik in Trossingen, Germany. Besides this, Rebecka has participated in master classes with Stefano Montanari and Rachel Podger. Now Rebecka is a freelance violinist, based in Stockholm. She has played with ensembles like Hofkapelle München and Hassler Consort, and plays regularly with Drottningholm Theatre Orchestra, Nordic Chamber Orchestra, Göteborg Baroque and Karlsson Baroque. Since spring 2012 Rebecka is a permanent member of the Drottningholm Baroque Ensemble, she has the baroque ensemble “Freedom, Baroque and Sisterhood” together with the viola player Karin Ahnlund and the cellist Mirjam Pfeiffer, and she is the artistic leader of Ensemble Utile Dulci and Ensemble Zellbell. Rebecka collaborates with the dancing master Anna Löfgren and the harpsichord player Wilhelm Dahllöf around historical society dance. She is also often engaged as a soloist and concertmaster.
Isolde Callisto Puts – violin
Isolde is in Husavik for a research project for a few months in 2024, looking into how climate changes affect biogeochemistry and ecology in the bay. She compares the ecological functioning across other northern European systems, such as in Greenland, Norway, and the Baltic Sea, and combines science with music (…/baltic-sea-festival…/). In her free time she plays violin and plays in different settings, and takes courses from Rebecka Karlsson. Isolde is excited to tour with the violin duo this year in a program that includes folk music.
Free entry for museum guests.
