Anniversary Compilation #4 – Innocence and experience

Sven-Erik Bäck’s motets: milestones in Swedish sacred music and in the EEKK’s history. Here with the composer himself as conductor. Fredrik Malmberg takes us across the Baltic Sea to Latvia and Maija Einfelde’s serene twilight atmosphere from 2003. In 1957, the EEKK recorded Lars-Erik Larsson’s Missa brevis, in which the small choir calmly weaves his delicate polyphony. In 2009, Anders Nilsson paints with epic sounds in harmony with Goethe’s demons and primordial forces. Ingvar Lidholm’s Canto LXXXI has often appeared in the EEKK’s concert programmes since its first performance in the late 1950s. And then Brahms and his song of fate together with the Gävle Symphony Orchestra and Jaime Martin. In 1979, Sven-David Sandström challenged the EEKK when taking on William Blake’s lullaby at the same time as the roaring tiger. Innocence and experience, hand in hand.
