Jag ville vara en annan (2013)

(I wanted to be someone else)

choir, electric violin, electric (amplified) clarinet, 2 computers

Lyrics: Per Lagerkvist

Music: Stefan Klaverdal


Score (pdf)

Recording (mp3)


Following a close collaboration with the duo Essens:1 an opportunity arised to write a number of pieces for choir and the duo. This is one of the pieces.

The music captures the overall melancholic mode in the lyrics.


Jag ville is also a part of a work in progress of a selection of lyrics by Nobel laureate Per Lagerkvist for choir a capella or with instruments.


During the same project I did a few arrangements of other tunes. These are available here:
