Rendezvous: Ensemble TM+, June 13
Remarkable ensembles, soloists, and symphony orchestras during concerts, festivals, and on the radio worldwide regularly perform Jesper Nordin’s music (with its obvious influences from Sweedish folk music, rock, and improvised music). Nordin has received several prestigious awards for his music in Europe and in the United States as well as a recommendation from UNESCO’s International Rostrum of Composers in 2005. Nordin has studied at the Royal College in Stockholm, at IRCAM in Paris, and at Stanford University in the United States. Among his professors, we can cite Pär Lindgren, Philippe Leroux, and Brian Ferneyhough. From 2004 to 2006 he was a composer-in-residence at P2, the Swedish radio’s serious music channel. In 2006, the Swedish radio broadcast the portrait-CD Residues that includes a number of his works for orchestra, but also for chorus, soloists, and electronics.
