About Musica Vitae
Musica Vitae Chamber Orchestra is the ensemble that brings live music – indeed the music of life – to each and every individual member of the audience. The vast realm that is art music is handled with the utmost precision and elegance by its string players. The repertoire consists of baroque and romantic as well as modernist and contemporary music from a wide variety of genres.
Listening to Musica Vitae is intimate and close, magnificent and dramatically colorful. Spearheaded by newly appointed Artistic Director Benjamin Schmid the ensemble presents musically unconventional constellations, continually forging new ties with leading soloists, conductors and composers worldwide. In the year 2017 Musica Vitae performed at the Nobel Banquet in Stockholm, and in 2019 the orchestra and Malin Broman released their lastest CD, Fanny and Felix, that recieved a lot of praise as well as a Grammis award nomination.
Musica Vitae appear on stages big and small in Sweden and abroad. Internationally, the orchestra has been warmly greeted in China, the United States, Greece, Switzerland, Germany and Spain to name but a few countries. In October 2018 Musica Vitae made a highly successful tour to Japan with sold out concerts in Tokyo and around. Their versatile repertoire is regularly seen, heard and reviewed in digital and print media.
A part of Musik i Syd
Musica Vitae is a part of Musik i Syd. We who work with and love music know how important music is for many people. Music arouses emotions, provides comfort, joy and a sense of belonging, and can help one develop as a person. Music tells the tale of life – music is an essential part of life.
Musik i Syd is a music institution in the Skåne and Kronoberg regions of Sweden that aims to give people access to creative and live music experiences. Its activities are part of a cultural policy assignment and it works to realise the goals of an active cultural policy that strives to make live music accessible even outside the major cities. Musik i Syd’s various initiatives and programmes provide adults and children in the region with the opportunity to experience high-quality music in places where it would otherwise not be possible to produce and provide such a range of music events.
