New Blog

"Maybe a blog is a format that is somewhat contradictory to use in my case: you're supposed to be personal, funny and even a little paradoxical. Well, I cannot promise the last. I will write philosophical train of thoughts and leave out too much sentiment. I guess the reader will have to take it or leave it. Still, maybe someone will find this thought-provoking and even stimulating."

Vicino alla Montagna - premiere in Tromsø

Nature is constantly present | Music perpetually sounds from beyond the mountains
Humankind arises from earth while Music is directing the cycle of life | Nature is the impartial arena

New Double Concerto

Composer Fred Jonny Berg says that the new Double Concerto has a special story behind it, and might be of interest for ballet choreography.

Read more about the Double Concerto

Perhaps, an example of life's intricacy, the last beam strikes a little girl sitting by the river bank looking towards the other side. But the beam does not bring death. She achieves magical powers from the beam, and the ability to see through time and space through a veil called "All that happens". She drifts where the wind blows, and leaves an "I was here" on a harp string.
- Fred Jonny Berg
