About the concert

Sweden’s Ensemble SON teams up with Miller favorites Either/Or to introduce to New Yorkers the Swedish-born, Netherlands-based composer Klas Torstensson. Championed by conductor Peter Eötvös, and celebrated at new music festivals in Huddersfield, Vienna, and Darmstadt, the composer has explored Nordic history and themes in works inspired by the polar seas and Arctic expeditions of yore. This program features recent chamber music works, including a new octet composed especially for Either/Or and Ensemble SON.
