Eric Ericson 1918-2013

The Swedish choral conductor and professor Eric Ericson has died today at the age of 94.
He founded his own chamber choir in 1945 and changed the choral sound forever.
With his own choir he conducted works that rarely been performed and suddenly choral music was written directly for his choir. We at classicalify hope that his legacy will live on.
