Retrospective - Concert with Jesper Nordin & Västerås Sinfonietta

Retrospective is the name of a series of orchestral works where Jesper Nordin looks back at previous works and recreates them in a new light. Jesper receives commissions from orchestras and leading contemporary music ensembles around the world, the San Francisco Symphony and the Ensemble Intercontemporain in Paris to name a few. His music is a personal mix of Swedish folk music, rock, improvisation and electronics where his own constructed digital composition tool called "gestrument" is often at the centre.

Now we invite you to a concert where Retrospective 1, 2, 3 and 4 are played and where three of the works have piano, violin and double bass in solo roles. Two of the works will be premiered this evening, with the ensemble Elefantöra providing the electronics. On stage we will see Daniel Frankel, Rick Stotijn and Simon Crawford-Phillips as well as dancers from the Work ensemble and Candoco Dance Company.

The concert ends with Joseph Haydn ending his successful stay in London with Symphony No. 104. Choreography is co-created by ShareMusic & Performing Arts, Work and Candoco Dance Company. The concert takes place in collaboration with Västmanlandsmusiken.
