about

Ivo Nilsson: Lunaria (2007-08)

9 orbite per soprano e 5 strumenti

Lunaria was freely inspired by the collections of anecdotes "Le Cosmicomiche" and
"Ti con zero" by Italo Calvino from which also the ten movements in this suite
derive their titles:

1. La distanza della Luna.
2. Sul far del giorno
3. Tutto in un punto
4. Senza colori
5. Giochi senza fine
6. Quanto scomettiamo
7. La Spirale
8. La molle Luna
9. La forma dello spazio
10. Coda della cometa


Jenny Hettne: Paths of Wood and Pearl (2010)

For flute, violin, cello and prepared piano

The main idea of the piece is pitch and non-pitch. Starting with a narrow pitch material, the piece is going through a pitchless part with percussive sounds in focus. Finally the music opens up, allowing a wider range of pitches. Throughout the piece is featuring a path of rhythmic basso continuo, alternating between the instruments. The piece was commissioned by The Peärls Before Swïne Experience and the Swedish Arts Council, and was premiered in October 2011 at the festival Sound of Stockholm.


Ivo Nilsson: Matematik à la Satane (2019)

�Matematik à la Satane� is inspired by the letter below, written by the poet Nelly Sachs. She wrote the letter to her landlord at Bergsunds strand in Stockholm.

This piece was premiered in 2019 by Ensemble Ma with Alexandra Büchel as soprano soloist. It was performed at Forum för levande historia as a part of the exhibition "Not the End."

Sedan omkring ett år hörs ett skärande ljud vid vattenkranen.
Det kunde först inte lokaliseras om det var över eller under min lägenhet
men man hade ej intrycket att det hade att göra med daglig hushållsgöromål.
Detta oljud pågick hela dagen igenom med några mellanrum.

Sent på kvällen började igen och fortsatte under natten på annat sätt och hela natten hördes i olika mellanrum knäppningar och smäller som gjorde en sömn omöglig. sedan knäpper det i köket och rummet dvs. överallt.

Eftersom det finns ej någon ro i lägenheten ej på dagen ej på natten är min hälsa och min litterair allvarligt hotad. Då jag ochsa arbete hemma sa maste jag lider ännu mer än andra hyresgäster som är borta under större delar av dagen.

På långfredagen har >motorn< tydligen kommit i olag att även mina grannar Svenssons blev uppmärksamma på detta högljude oväsen och berättade att det då och då fått sådant som en elektrisk stöt vid vattenkranen.

En verkstad har i hemlighet nästlat in sig ovanför min lägenhet. Det är unga, antagligen arbetslösa människor och jag får ingen ro vare sig dag eller natt. Det värsta med det är, att så många människor är inblandade i det och att jag är helt och hållet hjälplös.

Kan inte längre sova, måste göra det hos en granne. Mänskligt har jag gjort den erfarenheten, En Hitlerhälsning i ynklig och oerhörd feghet.

Min våning var telegrafrummet med morsesignaler och alla finesser. Jag har lovat att tiga om det, och kommer också att göra det.


Denna telegrafi mäter ut min kropp
med sin matematik à la Satane
De ställen som känsligt ger återklang
En ängel byggd av
kärlekens önskningar dör och jag
återuppstår i de
bokstäver som jag
reser i

Many Thanks to Kulturrådet for generous support. Thanks also to Svensk musikvår and Judisk kultur.
