Way back in 1946, Eric Ericson created the chamber Choir, Sweden’s first professional choral group, and for many years thereafter he directed the Swedish Radio Choir and OD, the well-known Uppsala University male voice choir.

In recent decades, Eric Ericson, with an immense repertoire extending from Renaissance madrigals and Bach to the music of our own age, has come to mean a great deal to European and American choral singing. One vital and fruitful aspect of his artistic career has always been his productive and close contacts with many of today’s leading composers, and with the passing years he has become one of the foremost ambassadors of Swedish music.

Eric Ericson stands out today as one of the foremost choral conductors of our time, one who has not only achieved a brilliant career as a conductor but has also, though his dedicated teaching, made choral music in Sweden a mass movement, radically advanced the artistic standing of, above all, the unaccompanied choir and inspired a far-reaching development of its expressive potential.
