Marianna Henriksson

Marianna Henriksson is an internationally and nationally performing harpsichordist. She graduated from the Sibelius Academy (Master of Music 2010) and the Universität der Künste in Berlin (Konzertexamen 2012), and has since performed extensively as a member of orchestras (e.g. in Germany and abroad). She has since then performed with orchestras such as the European Union Baroque Orchestra, Finnish Baroque Orchestra, Helsinki Baroque Orchestra, Les Ambassadeurs, Il Pomo d' oro, Il suonar parlante, KORE), with European and national chamber music partners (e.g. Alexis Kossenko, Zefira Valova, Vittorio Ghielmi) and as a soloist (solo recitals, concerts as soloist with various orchestras). Henriksson's performances have taken her all over Europe, Russia, Japan and Chile.

Henriksson enjoys working with a variety of musical genres and interdisciplinarity. Her most recent major production was the Monteverdi Maria Vespers, choreographed by Anna Mustonen and conducted by Henriksson, as a co-production between the Helsinki Baroque Orchestra and the Zodiak Centre for New Dance. The collaboration between Mustonen and Henriksson was awarded the 2018 State Prize for the Performing Arts. Henriksson's versatile work as a musician has so far included premieres and recordings of new harpsichord music, arrangements of folk music, playing on the world tour of a breakdance show, and performing in opera productions from Monteverdi to Stravinsky and Saariaho.

Henriksson is pursuing a doctorate in art at the Docmus unit of the Sibelius Academy, where she is working on the subject of the affectations of early seventeenth-century Italian music in a multi-artistic light. Henriksson's debut solo album Frammenti del discorso amoroso was released in 2018 and was nominated for the 2018 Yle Record of the Year.
