  • 40 years anniversary

    On November 7th 1981 I composed this piece, POEM for piano solo. Exactly 40 years later I recorded it, November 7th 2021. This piece still remains on my official work-list.

  • 2022 upcoming!

    The Pandemic is finally loosing its grip. Amazing! All my 5 oratorios will be performed next year including the world premier of St Matthew passion (Musikkforlagene). 2022 is my 60th anniversary and will also include a lot of other big premieres such as “Gloria”for 2 soloists, mixed choir and symphony orchestra in Germany. Premier recordings of 4 Motets a cappella as well as premieres of “Quattuor Elementa” and “Mater Creatoris” to mention a few. I believe I’m a very fortunate and blessed contemporary composer!

  • New worked delivered!

  • Flash! The four Elements!
  • New Commission – Canterbury Cathedral!

    Sam Corkin, a professional Saxophonist from Kent, UK has launched a new exciting project where a selection of Composers are to re-imagine famous choral works from the past. My choice is “O Nata Lux” by Thomas Tallis (1505-1585). The premier recording of this work will take place in June together with 13 other commissioned pieces. The public World premieres are planned for 2022.

    Stay tuned!

  • New collaboration & commission
  • Award!

    I was just awarded a Scholarship from the Society of Swedish Composers due to my accomplishments during last year. It’s a true honor!
