Stockholm (Sweden), 1971

Jesper Nordins music is starting to make a mark on the international music scene with it’s characteristic soundworld and powerful emotional impact. This has led to him being selected as one of the composers to be published in Edition Peters new line “Die Neue Generation” during 2008. The music of Jesper Nordin, with its clear traces of traditional Swedish folk music, rock music and improvised music, is performed and broadcast throughout the world. His orchestral music has been performed by symphony orchestras like BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, Basel Symphony Orchestra, Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra as well as chamber ensembles like L’itinéraire, ASKO and Ensemble Orchestral Contemporain. From 2004 to 2006 he was Composer in Residence at P2, the Swedish Radio’s serious music channel. In 2006 the Swedish Radio also released the portrait-cd Residues that include several of his orchestral pieces as well as works for choir, solo instruments and electronics. Residues has been hailed as a “milestone for contemporary music lovers” in France and as “a central album of the Swedish music from the first decade of the 21st century” in Swedish press.
