City Life – World premiere

On Sunday November 11 my new piece for orchestra will have it´s world premiere at Musikaliska, Nybrokajen 11, Stockholm at 6 pm. Conductor: Hugo Ticciati. Performing orchestra: O/Modernt plus members of Swedish Wind Orchestra.

The piece was commissioned to commemorate the 125th anniversary of  Gehrmans Music Publishing House with support from Inge and Einar Rosenborg´s Foundation for Swedish Music.

The piece is a “companion piece” to Swedish composer Lars-Erik Larsson´s Pastorale Suite , capturing the antithesis – the metropolitan pulse – some eighty years later. This reflection of contemporary urban life mirrors the many-faceted movements throughout a day, from dawn to dusk.
