Premiere of ‘Antiphonae Intervallum’

January 14th, 2015 | Posted by mikaelcarlsson in composition | concerts

My seven ‘O antiphons’ I composed for the Haga Motettkör was premiered in service in December conducted by Ulrike Heider. The seven rather short pieces – around 15 minutes all together – are entitled Antiphonae Intervallum since each and one of the pieces are based on one of the intervals in a major scale. I often find that formal restrictions is a real creativity trigger and the challenge forced me to write in new ways. Limited by the harmonic constraints but of course also paying attention to the text made this a very rewarding composition project. Below is a recording from the premire of the second movement, O Adonai.
