Two concerts in Germany

Last weekend Göteborgs Vokalensemble, a chamber choir that I am a member of since last autumn, visited Chorioso, my former German choir from Karlsruhe. For two concerts, one in Baden-Baden and one in Karlsruhe, the choirs joined forces and sang German and Nordic music. Even two of my pieces were performed: Havet and, for the first time, Se och smaka herrens godhet. I want to thank both choirs for the fantastic time we had and for the great performances of my pieces.

I even made a recording of Havet which can be listened to under Havet’s article.

First performance of »Die Qual der Wahl«

The Remigius chamber choir Nagold has successfully performed Die Qual der Wahl for the first time. The piece is a commission for the international choir competition which was held during the choir festival Frankfurt 2012 and arranged by Deutscher Chorverband.
With my piece the choir recieved a special award for the best first performance of a folk song arrangement.

Sirén-Festival

Every year the composition and sound art students at Göteborgs musikhögskola get an amazing opportunity: They get to organise their own festival. For three days the whole school is committed to us students. For our projects and concerts we can use the school’s rooms, resources, people…

This year’s Sirén Festival will take place between the 8th and the 10th of March. Three of my pieces are going to be performed: On Thursday at 18 p.m. Proportionen and Havet will recieve their first public performances in Orgelsalen and in the final concert on Saturday at 21 p.m. in Konsertsalen Variationen über ein altes Thema will be spoken.

But apart from my own pieces there will be a lot of other interesting performances and installations. It will thus be definitely worthwhile to visit the school during these three days and see what is going on.

Concert with SNOA

SNOA, the Swedish National Orchestra Academy, has commissioned a piece from me which they are going to play on Saturday, the 28th of April 2012. The orchestra will be conducted by Roland Kluttig, GMD in Coburg. Apart from my composition, Salvador Brotons’ Percepcions percudides for percussion and string orchestra and Franz Schubert’s 8th symphony in C major The Great will be performed.

Update: The piece has now been finished. It is called PRISMA, more details can be found here.
