A creative response to the COVID-19 pandemic and its consequent obliteration of livelihoods for freelance musicians:
SOLITARY POEMS FOR SOPRANO SAXOPHONE aims to ameliorate this situation and simultaneously support the creation of new music by leading Swedish, Norwegian, Albanian and American composers.
This new repertoire will be a treasure when we can physically attend live performances again in our beloved concert halls around the world. This series will present a world premiere on the first day of every month until January 1st, 2023.
