Aqua songs - for piano quartet (2015)
This piece was commissioned by The Royal Swedish Academy of Music for the official celebration of H.M. King Carl XVI Gustaf, King of Sweden, on his 70th birthday. The premiere took place at the Royal Opera on 29 April 2016 with H.M. present. The idea behind this piece was how the water in Stockholm surrounds us all and how we experience it.
