Erika Sunnegårdh

The Album

 

“…reveals Sunnegårdh to be as fearless vocally as she is commercially… she strikes her top notes with thrilling power and accuracy…”

Andrew Clark, The Financial Times

cd

“…offers an impressive taste of the range of this dramatic soprano… she convinces with a secure technique and a shining voice… but also succeeds in building an impressive linguistic development from which the voice peacefully grows forth, particularly in the Act Two Fliegende Holländer Duet… this is also specifically clear as applied to the Vier Letzte Lieder by Strauss, which are served up on this foundation of text treatment and calmness of the breath.”

– M Lehnert, Das Opernglas

“Though the programming is ambitious .. the disc is still best parsed by those who know Sunnegårdh’s considerable stage charisma, the conceptual integrity of her interpretations and her expansive, sometimes unruly tone … Sunnegårdh isn’t the kind of singer who aspires to be tame.”

– David Patrick Stearns, Gramophone

About The Kickstarter Project

The album was partly financed through a Crowd Sourcing Campaign (completed in 2013), the goal of which was to off-set enough of the costs to be able to offer the album as a free download to those whose finances do not allow for frequent or adventurous (!!) music purchases! Although Erika’s philosophical viewpoint stands firmly on the assertion that musicians should be paid, asking consumers to set their own price on their purchase opens up a reassessment of the artist – consumer exchange. Needless to say, this project is not expected to turn any kind of profit, even though there is a hope for recuperation of costs over time.
