Saxophone and Organ + New Choir Music Ahead

I was very happy to hear With Thy Saints Surrounded for Saxophone and Organ performed again, this time by Jörgen Pettersson and Bengt Tribukait in St Eskil’s Church. Last time I heard it was in Tyresö Church a couple of years ago, with Johannes Thorell and my brother.

Following the quickly approaching end of an unusually busy spring semester with teaching and PhD studies, I am beginning work on a new choir piece for Neuer Chor Berlin. I have worked with this fine choir before, resulting in the SATB piece, The Hornet. The header picture above on this site features a photo from the premiere performance of that piece with their former conductor, Maike Bühle.

Saxophone and Organ in St Eskil

Jörgen Pettersson told me the other day he and Bengt Tribukait are performing my piece for saxophone and organ in St Eskil’s Church in Handen, Haninge, Saturday 3 June at 3.00 pm.

He says their interpretation is both warm, and at times fiery/hasty. Regardless of my piece I recommend hearing these two musicians in action.
