Independent Swedish composer Karin Rehnqvist writes startingly intense and immediately communicative music. It often evokes elemental forces and draws on vernacular traditions and modernist innovations by equal measure. This concert includes the UK premières of Raven chant, a riveting ensemble piece referring to Nordic mythology, and of Rehnqvist's masterpiece Quem chama?, subtitled 'happening for concert hall, two singers and ensemble'. The latter employs the unique vocal techniques of Swedish ancient folk music in a way both archaic and cutting-edge.
