Shared Loneliness

107 composers express their shared loneliness. A collective composition in three parts in which 107 composers contemplate on our times and the current situation. We hear members of KammarensembleN under Christian Karlsen’s lead, and actress Marika Lagercrantz.

Welcome to a joint artistic manifestation: a collective composition in three parts in which 107 composers contemplate on our times and the current situation.

This spring, the Swedish Society of Composers invited to an artistic experiment where different composers’ experiences and creations are woven into a common musical work. ”The fact that so many composers are gathered here in a collective compositional project is a unique and exciting happening. We believe in music’s ability to comfort and unite in difficult times”, says Stefan Forsberg, CEO of Konserthuset Stockholm.

Mosaic Tales is a work in three parts where each of the 107 participating composers contributed with 10–15 seconds of music, creating a continuation of the preceding music. The project was initiated in May 2020 and finished in October. Mosaic Tales consists of two instrumental sections for chamber ensemble and one electro acoustic section.

We hear members of KammarensembleN under Christian Karlsen’s lead. KammarensembleN was founded 1984 and is a leading ensemble specializing in contemporary music. Christian Karlsen (born in 1985) is a noted conductor with an international career. He received the Swedish Society of Composers’ Interpretation Award in 2019. Actress Marika Lagercrantz reads texts that are connected with the music and the theme.
