Info for Pettersson: Vox Humana & 6 Sanger

Ever since I began my work as a producer with cpo, I’ve wanted to release Allan Pettersson’s cantata Vox humana from 1974 as part of our edition of his works. However, we could not find the right Swedish soloists and a Swedish choir for the job. Now we’ve finally found the ensembles we wanted and can release this magnificent work on cpo. Vocal works occupy a relatively modest place in Pettersson’s oeuvre; after the composition of the Barfotasånger from 1943 to 1945, almost thirty years passed before he again decided to write a work for the human voice. In 1973 / 74 he wrote his twelfth symphony based on texts from Pablo Neruda’s Canto general and immediately thereafter, in 1974, the three-part cantata Vox humana, which is also often termed a song cycle and likewise is based exclusively on South American texts. And as a bonus the CD also contains Pettersson’s Six Early Songs for Middle Voice and Piano, here in a special arrangement by Staffan Storm for string orchestra and harp from 2016. A gala premiere event!

Daniel Hansson
is University Music Director at Malmo University and Artistic Director for Malmo University orchestra and choir and Ensemble SYD.

Daniel Hansson comes from a Scandinavian conducting tradition, and has been greatly influenced by teachers such as Jorma Panula, and Eric Ericson. While Hansson has a passion for traditional repertoires, his bold and innovative approach has led him to arrange and conduct numerous large commissions of new music. Among the ensembles he has conducted are the Monte Carlo Philharmonic, Manaus Opera, Ukrainian Festival Orchestra, Malmö Symphony Orchestra and the Swedish Radio Choir.

Hansson is a respected and sought-after educationalist and guest professor in conducting at the Conservatory of Music in Lviv, Ukraine. Beyond leading a number of courses and seminars on conducting, he continuously works towards making music education as inclusive as possible across all age groups. Actively promoting music and culture in society, Hansson was one of the innovators and initiators of Körcentrum Syd, an organisation which aims to foster and nurture choral activities in southern Sweden. His Grammy nomination followed his founding of the Ensemble Syd, southern Sweden’s only professional vocal ensemble.
