Final concert during the Composer Festival Thea Musgrave

This past Sunday I participated in the last concert of the Stockholm International Composer Festival dedicated to Thea Musgrave. It was an amazing and impressive chamber concert with Musgrave music from the 1950s undtil today.
I sang  A song for Christmas (to poems by William Dunbar) with brilliant pianist Stefan Lindgren. This song was composed during the late 1950s and is wonderfully built on twelve-tone technique.
Together with Nicholas Daniel (oboe d'amore) and Pascal Siffert (viola) I performed Snow to poems by Isaac Rosenberg. This piece was composed 2010 and the three melody lines are closely and beautifully entwined!

I want to give my warmest thanks to Norrköpings Symfoniorkester, to conductor Dalia Stasevska, to Stockholms Konserthus/Stockholm Concert Hall, to Stefan Lindgren, Pascal Siffert and Nicholas Daniel, and of course to Thea Musgrave for a wonderful production week during the Composer Festival 2018. It has been an honor!
