Biography

Text: Stefan Warnqvist

The singer, multi-instrumentalist and composer Anna Einarsson never choose the predictable for her creativity and do not let herself be constrained by genres. On her three CDs with the group Anagram she has moved between wayward jazz, sophisticated art music and multi- layered electronics. Meetings between different art forms and means of communicating have been a key guiding principle for her for many years.

Outside the group, she has composed music for dance performances, children’s choirs, tram journeys, string orchestras and big bands. Her music has been performed both at the big jazz festivals in Sweden and at the Musica Viva Festival in Lisbon. Reveries premiered 2009, a work for orchestra, electronics, voice, piano and double bass, commissioned by Dalasinfoniettan. The work is also released on an album with the same name that was hailed by reviewers.
To say that she has come a long way since she, at the age of 13 became the youngest STIM fellow ever, is no exaggeration. On April 24 2012, Anna’s chamber opera “P.S. Jag kommer snart hem” was premiered in Malmö. With this work Anna confirmed her position as one of the most peculiar and innovative composers in the country. Anna received an inquiry from Malmö operaverkstad two years ago and was immediately lured by the creative challenge.

“ It’s always fascinating to see the emergence of a new work, from a musical seed of thought to delivery and premiere performance”, says Anna.

What all Anna Einarsson’s compositions have in common is originality, the ability to create images for the listeners and to provoke thoughts and reflections on existential issues.

Reveries (2009)

”The singer and electronic composer, Anna Einarsson, ambitiously mix electronics, jazz and symphony orchestra in the project Reveries, which premiered in Dalarna in the beginning of the year. It is now released on record on her own label. SvD Kultur


Archipelago (2007)

”The end result is often called jazz, but here there is an equally strong tone of contemporary electronic music, which gives Anagram its very own sound. Something that makes them equally suited for Swedish Jazz Celebration in Luleå as for an evening at Ugglan in Stockholm.” SvD Kultur


Anagram (2005)

”The record contains nine musical gems where she (Anna) uses her extensible voice both dynamically and in a pleasurable way. There is a drama in her voice that she uses to the fullest. The arrangements contains tiny refinements, which reveal themselves after listening more than once.” UNT


All CDs costs 139 SEK (ca 16 Euro). Shipping included. Are they to be shipped outside Sweden, an additional shipping charge may apply. You are welcome to send an email if you have any questions.
