Martin Fröst: I want to open new doors to the future

30 min

The Swedish clarinetist and conductor Martin Fröst has embarked upon a multi-year project entitled Genesis which explores the source and development of music for a period of 2000 years.

Genesis is inspired by dance and folk, music drawn from sacred rituals of praise and music as pure entertainment. It also includes new work from the Swedish composer Anders Hillborg. The project had its premiere in December 2015 with the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra.

Kerstin Berggren met Martin Fröst for a Spotlight talk about the project.

Genesis follows Martin Fröst´s hugely innovative visual project Dollhouse, released worldwide on disc as Roots
