Sven-David Sandström

born: 30 October 1942
died: 10 June 2019
country: Sweden

The Swedish composer Sven-David Sandström studied musicology and history of art at the University of Stockholm, and composition at the Royal College of Music in the same city. His output embraces concertos for flute, guitar, piano and cello, ballets, chamber music and the opera Jeppe: The cruel comedy. His music integrates ideas drawn from pop music, jazz and minimalism, and he was active also as a film composer. Having started out as one of Sweden’s foremost modernists, during the 1980s he turned towards postmodernism, cultivating a simpler, less astringent musical language.
