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
