The Swedish soprano, Maria Keohane, covers a wide range of music, from the baroque to contemporary compositions including chamber music, opera and oratorios.
Maria Keohane has performed in Peri's Euridice (as Proserpino and L'Altra Ninfa) at the Gothenburg Theater, and in Monteverdi's Il Ritorno d'Ulisse in Patria (as Melanto) at the Drottningholm Royal Court Theatre in Stockholm. She has also sung J.J. Mourets Les Amours de Ragonde and the title role in M. Marais' Alcione. She recently performed the part of Salome in A. Stradellas oratorio San Giovanni Batisda in Malmo, Sweden. She specializes in adapting her stage appearance to Baroque practices.
Maria Keohane is often engaged as an oratorio soloist and has performed with the Malmã Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Eric Ericson, and with the Drottningholm Baroque Ensemble, conducted by Anders Öhrwall. She also takes a keen interest in chamber music and appears regularly with the Gothenburg Bach Ensemble.
Outside Sweden Maria Keohane has performed in Italy, with Jakob Lindberg and in France and the Ukraine, with the trumpeter Niklas Eklund. With Eklund she also made a six-week tour of the USA, performing at various universities and conservatories.
For Naxos, Maria Keohane contributed to the recording with Niklas Eklund and the Wasa Baroque Ensemble of The Art of Baroque Trumpet, Vol. 5, singing rare ensemble pieces by Galuppi, Ziani and Antonio Vivaldi.
