Pierrot Lunaire

Pierrot Lunaire

Schönbergs Pierrot Lunaire is one of the pieces that I enjoy performing the most, and I´ve also sung it a lot of times.
The latest performance of it was in Atalante (one of my favourite theaters!) in January this year together with conductor Jerker Johansson with whom I´ve sung Pierrot on several occasions.
About 10 years ago we did an unforgettable tour of Norway with a quite challenging concert program where I first sang Boulez ”Le Marteau sans Maître” and then Pierrot Lunaire.
I was definitely younger then…

Next year I will not sing but direct Pierrot for Norrbotten NEO and the artist Sofia Jernberg. A new challenge which I’m really excited about!

”The eminent mezzo Monica Danielson has an impressive capacity to combine pertinence and dark undercurrents with poetic feeling. Very good!”   GP

Vad Man Måste

augusti 1st, 2008
Duo Ego

When Duo EGO was established in 2001 by myself and my friend Per Sjögren, percussionist, we had just been on tour with ensemble Gageego. An absolutely lovely bunch of people but we were really fed up with being so many people trying to agree on when to eat, waiting at the bus for latecomers, picking up passports which had been left behind etc…
So, we went to our favourite pub, had a beer and decided that we would start Duo EGO – no extras!
In the beginning it was not very easy to find repertoire for voice and percussion, but as the years have gone by we can now proudly present more than one full concert program with repertoire composed for us!
Even more impressive – a small opera of our own: ”Vad man måste” by Paula af Malmborg Ward. A comic mini-opera which in 25 minutes deals with immigration issues, painted wooden horses and several different ways of eating a banana split!

”It’s horrifying and funny and with Malmborg-Ward´s special timing not a second too long!”   ” …fantastic a capella song by Danielson…”   Expressen

”This is how you create a success!”   BT
