In a creative response by Anders Paulsson to the COVID-19 pandemic and its consequent obliteration of livelihoods for freelance musicians,
this piece was composed by Ann-Sofi Söderqvist and will be performed by Paulsson in a series of SOLITARY POEMS FOR SOPRANO SAXOPHONE
aimed to ameliorate the situation and simultaneously support the creation of new music by leading Swedish and American composers.
Paulsson reflects: “This new repertoire will be a treasure when we can physically attend live performances again in our beloved concert halls around the world”.
The series present a world premiere on the first day of every month from February 2021 through August 2023. SOLITARY POEM #9 – Solitude – will be premiered on September 1, 2021.
