As part of the celebration of 100 years of Ingmar Bergman, the Royal Swedish Academy of Music offers an evening of cinematic soundtracks. It is no exaggeration to say that Swedish film comprises a trove of musical treasures. From Jules Sylvain and Kai Gullmar via classical composers like Lars-Erik Larsson and Dag Wirén to more modern composers like Benny Andersson, Matti Bye, and Ludwig Göransson – the composer behind this year’s Hollywood blockbuster, Black Panther.
Are newly composed film scores really necessary when older classical music is available? Does no one dare to use Bach and Schumann since the days of Bergman? Wikipedia’s list of 79 film score composers includes only one woman. Why is that the case? Join us on a dizzying journey through Swedish film history, viewed through the lens of music.
