Six Modern Swedish Composers

Listen
Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 123 min
Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA

In a program that was probably first broadcast in 1969 or 1970, Bennett Tarshish presents the works of six 20th Century Swedish composers. The program begins with a piece of electronic music by Jan Morthenson, entitled “Neutron Star”. Next, is a work scored for soprano and chamber ensemble called “Landscape of Dreams” by Maurice Karkoff. This is followed by an electro-acoustic work by Jan Bark, called “Bar”, on which the composer plays all the instruments as well as providing all electronic manipulation. The program then continues with two works by Bengt Hambræus, first is “Fresque Sonore” for instrumental ensemble and electronic tape followed by an orchestral work entitled “Transfiguration”. Next is “Altisonans” by Karl Birger Blomdahl a musique concrète piece featuring bird songs, and finally the electronic work “1/1967: Nya släpkoppel med vida världen, besök, äventyr, lindringar, etc.’ by Bengt Emil Johnson.
