Carin Malmlöf-Forssling’s music is striking and dynamic, with a distinct feel for sound. The dramatic and evocative Flowings for orchestra, which was commissioned by the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra, became a huge success.
Malmlöf-Forssling studied composition and piano at what is now known as the Royal Swedish Academy of Music in Stockholm. She also travelled to Paris and studied under the legendary Nadia Boulanger. Her oeuvre includes songs, chamber music, orchestral works and even some electro-acoustic music. She was born in Gävle, but was primarily active in Falun as a piano teacher, in addition to composing.
This excerpt of music is from episode 1 of the series Mankind and Music. The five episodes are available to watch here on Konserthuset Play. Why does music exist? What happens to us when we make or listen to music? In this series, we explore answers to these questions together with musicians, listeners and researchers.
