I need some help with my second movement for my viola sonata, a sarabande with quite a lot of double and triple stops. The problem is that though I have tried to make it as playable as I can, I still…Continue
In my latest piece (a string quartet) I had to limit myself to write only what is possible to play for the rather poor students at my school. I am not sure whether I managed to keep it on their level…Continue
This is the first movement of my new string quartet of which the Allegretto in F major will be a middle movement. Just as witht the F major Allegretto I had the limitations of not expanding the range…Continue
I have been composing in smaller formats since 2004 and have had performances of my music regularly.
The music featured in my playlist is the following.
Nocturne in F major for solo piano
This Nocturne was composed as a gift to my wife, who is a piano teacher, for our seventh wedding anniversary in June 2016.
This is a one movement piece (possibly a secont movement of a future oboe sonata) for oboe and piano, based on my final project for the MOOC "Write like Mozart" written in February 2015.
A cradle song
This is the second song of my song cycle "Night songs" based on texts from William Blake's "Songs of innosence". It was recorded in Ceciliakapellet, Oskarshamns Folkhögskola, Oskarshamn Sweden on June 18th 2014. I both sing and play the piano on this recording made with my Zoom H2n.
Solig stig är full av under
This is one of my earliest songs composed back in 2008, when I was still in College. It was recorded in Ceciliakapellet, Oskarshamns Folkhögskola, Oskarshamn Sweden on June 18th 2014. I both sing and play the piano on this recording made with my Zoom H2n.
This song was written in 2013 for the New Years eve service in one of my local churches. It was recorded live in Döderhults kyrka, Oskarshamn Sweden on New Years Eve 2013. I both sing and play the piano on this recording made with my Zoom H2n.
Sie liebten sich beide
This song was written in 2011. It was recorded live in Ceciliakapellet, Oskarshamns Folkhögskola, Oskarshamn Sweden on October 1st 2013. I sing and am accompanied by Natalja Shakova at the piano.
Stjärnöga and Adagio
These songs are the first and third song (of five) in my song cycle "I drömmarnas spår" (In the trails of dreams) written in May/June of 2013. They were recorded live in Robertson-Wesley United Church, Edmonton Canada on November 2nd 2013. Cindy Koistinen, soprano sings and is accompanied by Heidi Saario at the piano.
My music has been performed in Sweden, Germany, Austria and Canada by a number of singers, pianists and choirs both professional and amateur.
I have just finished my second string quartet in d minor. Compared to the G major quartet posted on my page here, I think it is a big leap forward in a great many ways. It is held within the Classical style, with a first movement in sonata form, a second slow movement in ABA form and a final movement in rondo form.
I have taken some inspiration from the writings of Joseph Haydn ending the first movement in the major tonic, and using only two part writing in the first theme of the…Continue
