In an effort to live more according to my ideas of alternavelopment, I went to a concert at the House of Sweden in mid-January. It was an indie-jazz concert with Sarah Riedel, Viktor Skokic, and a string quartet from New York, and I had not idea what to expect, but I have to say that it was the best concert I have been to in years. Probably one of the top five ever! The music was a mix between other’s songs (including some old Swedish songs) and Riedel’s own music, all arranged in interesting settings either with just a cello or with the cello and the other string instruments. Above all, Sarah Riedel’s voice was amazing. Some thing out of this world! If you ever have a chance to the see them perform, I can really recommend it! Here is a clip from a concert on a Stockholm archipelago boat, though with other musicians. The sound isn’t very good and the setting doesn’t allow her to use the full range of her voice, but it gives you an idea at least.
