Music from the past, inspired by tomorrow
As a cellist in the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra with 100 musicians on stage, I have the privilege of playing beautiful orchestral pieces with world-class conductors. It's a powerful, dynamic orchestral sea. Over the years, my desire for my own expression has grown. With parts of classical music that I particularly like, I make a kind of musical remake. Music at the intersection of acoustic and electronic sounds.
Earth [Remember me]
Earth is Johanna Sjunnesson's version of Henry Purcell's aria Dido's Lament.
”Bang up to date, gorgeous” Radio Scala, London.
Johanna's version of the 16th century's most famous song, John Dowland's Flow my tears.
Air [Breathe me]
Air is inspired by a theme by Marin Marais.
Aerial is a free interpretation of Bach's beautiful aria Erbarme dich.
In Stream, Johanna has been playing with notes from Bach's Cello Suite in G major.
Crisp sounds inspired by snow, ice and Vivaldi's seasons.
Curiosity and exploration of different musical expressions and formats is a strong driving force for Johanna. As a soloist, she has performed at Konserthuset and Berwaldhallen, at the Grammy Gala and the Polar Prize Banquet, at Cirkus and the Blue Hall in Stadshuset. Chamber music has an important place and together with a large number of artists from different genres she has performed and toured in Sweden and abroad. There have also been many recordings for radio, television and as a studio musician.
