KANDVAL and BÄCKa double centennial
This concert celebrates two Scandinavian musicians who were born in Sept 1919: Johan KVANDAL, and Sven-Erik BÄCK. Kvandal developed his own “modern tonality” influenced by Norwegian folk and international contemporary music. Bäck’s choral music sets conservative Biblical texts in decidedly non-traditional treatments. In this sacred program, The Esoterics will perform all twelve of Bäck’s Motets for the church year in Swedish, and all of Kvandal’s sacred works for unaccompanied choir.
