Working with the young musicians of the Malmö Academy of Music is one of the highlights of my musical life. They are so incredibly talented, but also so intuitive, attentive and eager to improve that it makes for a wonderfully energising experience, certainly for me and I hope for them. The works on this recording are not easy – the Shostakovich is one of the great masterpieces of the 20th century, and a very, very dark, intense piece of music. The approach of the group was really inspiring to try with everything they had to find the right atmosphere and the appropriate sound world. I hope our hard work and respect for this great music comes across to all who hear it.
