Britta BystrĂ¶m is one of Swedenâ€™s leading composers.
In this, the first portrait disc devoted to her, featuring three major orchestral compositions, we also have the pleasure of presenting one of Swedenâ€™s foremost viola soloists â€“ Ellen Nisbeth, who has already risen to international greatness.
The viola concerto â€śA Walk After Darkâ€ť was premiered at Berwaldhallen, Stockholm, in February 2014, together with the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra under the young Swedish conductor Daniel Blendulf, who also conducts the MalmĂ¶ Symphony Orchestra in the other two orchestral works, â€śPicnic at Hanging Rockâ€ť and â€śInvisible Citiesâ€ť.
