First performance of commission ”Music for Caves/A kind of rebirth” for brass band, evolving around survivors and victims in caves and mines. Performance by Øresund Brass Band conducted by Jonas Nydesjö in the concert ”Exploding Brass”, who also play new pieces by Daniel Hjorth and Ida Lundén.
Also live performance by Klaverdal and the other composers present with live remixes of other pieces during the same concert.
Some reviews on the new CD Revelations:
Klaverdal writes music that is infectious with spontaneity… the music is light and playful… a music that is bursting with colourful dance effects.
Matti Edén, Sydsvenskan may 2010, Sydsvenskan
… listened to the Revelations-CD on C-Y contemporary with five chamber music pieces by Stefan Klaverdal (*1975): very powerful string quartet!
Walter Ekelin, June 2010
In my ears: Stefan Klaverdal och Tippet Quartet. Very exiting art music that moves in and out of different genres. With power!
Bengt Eriksson, July 2010
On the CD ”Revelations”, the music is in between laptop (electronica) and classical music, the electronics is not overwhelming, but serves as a very personal expression from the composer and the present.

Johan Westerberg and Per Andreasson perform the piece a home for demons for percussion and computer at the Classic Lounge concert series in Malmö. The piece is written for the unusual very small percussion setup of drum sticks and a piece of wood.
Per Ivarsson (trumpet) and Johan Westerberg (percussion) will also perform the piece and then I saw at the same concert. The two pieces will also be recorded for a future CD release.
