Since 1999 when our paths first crossed in the scenic landscape of Dalarna, playing in Orkester Norden, a Nordic orchestra for young musicians, we have deepened our professional relationship as members of the Nordic Chamber Orchestra in Sundsvall. Subsequently, as we were blessed with a family of two wonderful children, 2012 we took a leap into the big unknown Stockholm music life as freelancers and are now striking a new chord as we find each other anew as an intimate duo.
Beside playing double bass Eric arranges most of our music. Susanne, who is both a high soprano and violinist, has always treated her two instruments equally. It is our pleasure to present a unique repertoire for a ”trio of two” which highlights more than one unusual instrument combination. We have mainly received our education in the domain of classical music, yet go out of our way to continuously search for treasures that other genres have to offer.

She has worked on a regular basis as violinist in the Nordic Chamber Orchestra and Gävle Symfoniorkester and as a singer in the Swedish Radio Choir and Eric Ericson Chamber Choir.
