Benjamin Staern belongs to the leading Scandinavian composers of his generation. He made an early breakthrough with the symphonic work "The Threat of War". From this point on, Staern has developed a deeply personal style, where his ability to associate tones and timbres with different colours and tints is fundamental in his perception and the creation of his music.
