Mimitabu has for 10 years conveyed the shifting soundscapes of the newest Scandinavian art music in a playful and virtuosic manner, from scandispectralism, geometric constructivism, coloured noise and junk yard aesthetics to music inspired by Swedish November weather. By stretching the possibilities of the ensemble’s acoustic instruments (flute, oboe, clarinet, percussion, piano, violin, viola and cello) to the limits, complemented with electronics and various sounding objects, we can offer unexpected and near limitless sound worlds.
The anniversary concert, originally planned for April 2020, looks both backward and forward – we present highlights from our repertoire in music by Esaias Järnegard, Johan Svensson, Lina Järnegard and Ylva Lund Bergner, as well as a world premiere by the Icelandic composer Guðmundur Steinn Gunnarsson.
The concert will be presented as a video in August.
