Swedish soprano Miah Persson has distinguished herself as one of the leading interpreters of the music of Mozart and Strauss. In addition to the beauty of her silvery tone and her baroque specialist’s technical abilities, Persson is treasured for the intelligence and linguistic detail she brings to repertoire ranging from Monteverdi to Scandinavian art song.  Next month, Miah Persson makes her debut with Music of the Baroque in Bach’s St. John Passion.

An exquisite performance of “Et incarnatus est” from Mozart’s “Great” Mass in C minor.
