klas

Sweden’s Ensemble SON teams up with Miller favorites Either/Or to introduce Klas Torstensson, one of Scandanavia’s most important voices, to New Yorkers. Championed by conductor Peter Eötvös and celebrated at new music festivals in Huddersfield, Vienna, and Darmstadt, the composer has explored Nordic history and themes in works inspired by the polar seas and Arctic expeditions of yore. This program highlights chamber works, including a new octet composed especially for this occasion, for Either/Or and SON.
