To say that Anna von Hausswolff is a daring, inventive organ player with vocal technique to match is an understatement. She casts spells with both organ and vox, culminating in an emotional torrent that gushes over the listener and takes them deep into the dark heart of the forest beyond the imagination.
Some weeks ago, me and my colleague Johanna Lagerfors went to Copenhagen to meet Swedish musician Anna von Hausswolff. A few days earlier I had spoken to Anna and told her that I wanted to portrait her in a way that resembled her music. She suggested that we should go to the Thorvaldsen Museum. Since it´s opening in 1848 the museum has shown the work of the Danish sculptor Bertel Thorvaldsen (1770 - 1844). And the building is just fantastic. A calm atmosphere with nice colours, beautiful floors and large windows letting natural light in.
