Gunnar Idenstam: “It was a great honor to perform yesterday, on Bach´s birthday, this concert with Swedish folk music from the Baroque period, interleaved with chorals by Bach, wonderfully sung by Jessica Bäcklund, Love Enström, Kaspar von Weber and Johan Karlström. Thanks to my fantastic co-musicians Johan Hedin , Erik Rydvall , Niklas Roswall and Ida Meidell Blylod this was a lovely and beautiful exposure of our national treasure of elegant, sensual, spiritual and apelling dance music. In the 18:th century there wasn´t any clear difference in defining what was “folk” music and what we today call “classical” music, but there was only music!“
