Modern Fantazias

music by Michael Nyman.

Uppsala International Guitar Festival

11 october 2013

”Equally fascinating are the revisions of a number of Nyman

compositions, including the themes from his film scores, performed by Modern Fantazias conducted byHans Ek and with soprano Jeanette Köhn and guitarists Mats Bergström, Jojje Wadenius and Per Skareng the forefront.

I'm attracted by how well one manages to capture the minimalist nature, and highlight the tensions between the transparent and massively abundant, the chastised abstract and evocative imaginative in Nyman's music”
