Swedish soprano Miah Persson got her ‘big break’ in the UK when she sang the role of Fiordiligi in Mozart’s Così fan tutte.
Now one of the operatic world’s biggest stars, Persson has just made a recording of songs by Schubert, Grieg and Sibelius on the Wigmore Hall Live label – and this week we’re offering you her performance of Grieg’s Ein Traum, from his Six Songs, for your free download.
Speaking to James Naughtie in the August issue of BBC Music Magazine, Persson said ‘Music was something that we just did. I can’t remember thinking “I’m going to be a singer”. It was more like a feeling that this is what I enjoyed. If someone had told me when I was in my early teens that I was going to become an opera singer, it would not have been something I could understand or expect’
