Without Eliasson Artists, no Atlas Artists.
To a great extent, Atlas Artists owes its existence to Eliasson Artists Stockholm, founded in 2008 by opera singer Göran Eliasson. The company quickly rose to become one of the finest agencies in classical music and opera. Now, the torch is passed to Atlas Artists founders Andreas Lönnqvist and Johannes Nebel. From now on, the management also includes solo instrumentalists, conductors, and ensembles. Göran Eliasson and Anna Larsson are artistic advisors of the new Swedish management company.
The Swedish Queens
During the first half of the 17th century, Queen Christina was the first to commission Sweden’s first opera productions. Following a strong tradition of advocacy of music and arts, Queen Lovisa Ulrika ordered the building of the Drottningholm Palace Theatre in 1764. Her son, Gustaf III, founded the Royal Opera of Sweden with the outspoken intention to present a top-class musical stage.
The Swedish Singers
The first true vocal superstar was born in Sweden: Jenny Lind, The Swedish Nightingale and during her lifetime, the soprano Christina Nilsson became one of the most celebrated singers of the 19th century. Before Jussi Björling, Nicolai Gedda and Birgit Nilsson made their everlasting imprints, singers like Signe Hebbe (soprano), John Forsell (baritone), Set Svanholm (tenor), Joel Berglund (bass-baritone) and Leon Björker (bass) all are great examples of vocal stars Sweden’s impressive lineage of singers.
Our vision in perspective
Sweden has a long music tradition and still enjoys an extremely strong standing as a music nation. With a mix of traditional but progressive take on music; singing and playing an instrument has almost been considered a citizen’s right. It’s no coincidence that Sweden has produced countless music acts in all genres over the last half century.
