Helsingborg, Sweden (Livestream)—Become River

A world where everything flows
The concert is broadcast live via https://www.helsingborgskonserthus.se/live/
Composer Jimmy López has lived in three different continents during his 42 years on earth. From Peru via Finland to California, his musical wavelengths extend. And now Sweden! At this concert, López lets classical music meet South American and Afro-Peruvian music into an acoustic technobeat – after you become one with rushing tidal waves and partially branching melodic threads in the American John Luther Adams Become River. In between we play Hava, Lotta Wennäkoski’s piece. Here, too, the music flows, light and swirling, which according to the composer is not meant to describe anything, but is more about moods. In Hava, Wennäkoski has explored how music can illuminate a subject or subject in the same way as a novel does, and how music can use its own language. Hava means rustling or warn in Finnish. And of course it is noticeable how our senses are sharpened when the music begins to flow through the ear canals.
