In the autumn of 2021, Gehrmans Musikförlag and the Swedish Society of Composers launched a call for works by female and non-binary composers. Of the many pieces submitted, six are nominated by an external committee and will be published in 2022.
We are very proud to present the six chosen pieces of the series #swedishchoralmusic 2022!
#1: That Night of Falling Stars by Anna Cederberg-Orreteg
#2: Indifferent Fauna by Marie Sandell
#3: Nocturne by Birgitta Flick
#4: Wish-night (Önskenatt) by Linda Alexandersson
#5: TBA in October
#6: TBA in November
is a collaboration between Gehrmans Musikförlag and The Swedish Society of Composers. It aims to balance the eqality in choral music, Swedish and international. The six pieces chosen will be published by Gehrmans Musikförlag and spread to Swedish and international conductors and choirs. There will be one film for each piece, presenting the music and its composer, released in the series #swedishchoralmusic. The pieces are nominated by a committee of well known Swedish and international choir professionals. All pieces are anonymized before evaluation.
