Ulrika features on the Grammis winning album Live in New York,…. with her performance of “Rädda mig ur dyn” from a concert at Miller Theatre in New York, March 2012.
Rehnqvist’s music, rich in contrasts and with a strong base in Nordic folk music, has attracted great attention throughout the world. She is one of the most significant composers in Sweden and since 2009 she holds the position of Professor in Composition at the Royal College of Music in Stockholm.
“Karin Rehnqvist’s work for chamber ensemble and voice När korpen vitnar stood for the greatest emotional experience. Ulrika Bodén’s voice went straight to the heart and the music was completely irresistible. Folk music’s microtones charge Rehnkvist’s music with some sort of electricity. An incredibly emotional experience.”
