Now you can watch and listen to parts from our concert “Kristallen” from this summer in june!
We ended an amazing tour with “Kristallen” the 20 th of june 2016 after 5 great concerts in the north of Sweden – Östersund in Offerdals church. We got standing ovations by a very warm and generous audience. THANKYOU Östersund and all enthusiastic arrangers, music lovers and Estrad Norr who gave the opportunity for this tour to be real.
Here is a review from the newspaper in Länstidningen i Östersund. (in swedish)
This is the logo of the program when Estrad Norr advertised it during the spring 2016.
In june, I will together with my friend and colleague Jan Levander travel to Östersund in the north of Sweden with Estrad Norr as our arranger! We will perform our old swedish folksongs together with our own material in folkstyle which we have been working on for a long time. Mikael Skoglund – piano, Svante Söderquist – bass, Tomas Nyquist – drums and the string quartet Arche Jamt will join in a fantastic crossover program which we hope our friends in Östersund will like!
A recording for our second demo of Kristallen 2013:
Together with my friend Jan Levander I recorded a folksong project 6-7 of december that we have been working on for a long time and it was great fun! A great string quartet joined us and also a jazztrio with some of the best jazz musicians in Sweden where there. We recorded with analog tape and we are really looking forward to the mixing process and to listen to the finished result!
This is a new composition for soprano, violin and piano that I wrote for a masterclass this summer 2016 with prof. Rolf Martinsson at Båstad Chamber Music Festival. The three musicians made a beautiful performance of my piece “With your compassion” with lyrics by Rabindranath Tagore.
Uppsala Chamber Soloists
Two of my newly written compositions were premiered at the festival LJUDVÅGOR for contemporary music. I wrote music for Uppsala Chamber Soloists and for the jazz trio on Gotlandsmusiken. The music was very aprecciated and it was a magical moment when the chamber soloists performed my music “Reflections of Gotland” in an entirely amazing way. The following day the jazz trio did a wonderful performance on “Satori Extended”. I am very grateful for their professionalism and their great warmth, I want to express a big THANK YOU to all my friends and colleagues!
These two premiers were an ending of an amazing year at Gotland and Gotlands tonsättarskola where I have attended their one year education “Fri konst”. I want to thank my wonderful teachers, Mattias Sandell, Henrik Strindberg och Per Mårtensson for their great knowledge and generosity which they have shared in a very personal and warm way!
All the best from Magnus
Listen here to the last movement of “Reflections of Gotland – Light”:
The first concert with Matilda Bådagård, TrioX and my children songs was magic! The sun was literally shining down on us and the first song that I wrote a few years ago is called “The sun is shining down on you”, written by Karin Andersen. It is also the name of the show….Pure magic!
The film from the concert is here:
I am happy and proud to tell that my cd with Lars Jansson is now accomplished! It will be released at the record company Prophone Records in january 2015 and can be ordered at firstname.lastname@example.org. I am very grateful to Bertil Hansson for his beautiful cover art and Karin Andersen for her great work with the cd overall.
Warm greetings from Magnus

The multiwind player Kai Sunquist and I have written script, music and direction for a new play/concert for children with “MusikVasternorrland” in Sundsvall as a co-producer and arranger. Together with the beautiful coaching by the theaterpedagogue Annelie Arfmann, we now have a nice performance which we will perform in november 2013 in and around Sundsvall. The play contains an exciting story about where all music comes from and why it is so important to all human beings!
Whatch the presentation of the show here:
Standing ovation after the premiere of my Missa Brevis in St Birgitta church! The musicians and the choirs did a wonderful job and the audience were very moved by the performance. It was one of the greatest moments in my life. THANKYOU Västerleds community, all musicians and the two churchchoirs for a great performance! Listen to the music at "compositions" and scroll down!
