Elise Einarsdotter began playing the piano at six years old. By fourteen she was working as an organist in churches, and after (uncompleted) studies at the Academy of Music in Malmö, she finally landed a place at the prestigious Berklee in Boston. Returning to her home country in 1984, she founded the famous Elise Einarsdotter ensemble. In addition to her success as a pianist she composes her own pieces for jazz ensembles and musical theater. In her compositions she moves idiosyncratically through an ever-changing musical landscape of jazz, folk, soul and classical music.

 

An event of the Swedish embassy in cooperation with Musik i Syd.
