Passager for chamber orchestra or sinfonietta
Passager (Passages in English) was written in 2020. It's been performed by The Swedish Chamber Orchestra (conductor Jan Risberg) and Aarhus Sinfonietta (conductor Tom Goff). The piece is inspired by meetings and non-meetings between people, and was constructed by vocal improvisations.
Här fanns vatten for violin, clarninet in Bb and piano
Här fanns vatten (There was water here) was written in 2020. It's a take on the Swedish folkmelodi "Slängpolska efter Arvid Lundqvist från Harads". Harads is a village outside of Boden, Norrbotten that was very effected by the hydroelectric power station that was built in the 1950's in Luleälven (Luleå River). Because of this change, the part of the river called Edeforsen was destroyed and the population of salmon disappeared. The musicians playing in this recording is Kristin Kennemark (violin), Markus Mattson (clarinet) and Olga Albasini (piano).

Fortfarande letar jag vågen (I am still looking for the wave) was written in 2016 and is one of Linnea Landström's first compositions. The lyrics (written by the composer) is kind of an inner dialogue going on, questioning the search of happiness. It's been performed many times by the choir Discordia (conductor Hallie Reed Slettergren).
