CONCERTO FOR MARIMBA AND ORCHESTRA

 

Finally it is time for the world premiere of my first marimba concerto. In two weeks the Norrbotten Chamber Orchestra starts the rehearsals in Studio Acusticum, Piteå.

 

I'm filled with anticipation to hear the final result, but also a bit nervous since I will play the solo part as well. The French conductor

Pierre-André Valade will hold the baton.

 

The Concerto is commissioned by the Norrbotten Chamber Orchestra and is scored for a smaller orchestra (2222 2200 pno timp 2perc str).

Here is a photo of the sheet music as they where still warm from the printing house.

2017: 10 years Jubilee with Norrbotten-NEO

 

We will perform carefully chosen highlights from our first decade.

You will find pieces by Saariaho, Czernowin, Donatoni and Wallin to mention a few. A highly energetic concert.

During the month of October we rehearsed and performed our annual Chamber Opera. This year it was  the opera "Stilla min Eld" by composer Fredrik Högberg.

The opera was as huge success, acclaimed by both the audience and the critics, with seven performances in all four northern regions of our country.

 

Here is a live picture of me and my percussion set-up during the show in Black Box, Piteå.
