Sebastian Fagerlund



Sebastian Fagerlund (b. 1972) has established himself as one of the most prominent European composers of his generation. He studied composition at the Sibelius Academy in Helsinki under the guidance of Erkki Jokinen and received his diploma in composition in 2004. Important aspects of Fagerlund’s work are his interest in large-scale forms and a profound view of music expressing fundamental questions and existential experiences. A highly virtuosic instrumental feel and strong sense of musicianship are noticeable in all of his works, creating musical dramas in which powerful expression is combined with intensity and vivid communication, as well as an openness towards different musical traditions. Works by Fagerlund have been commissioned and performed by numerous major orchestras, outstanding conductors and musicians all over the world. His output ranges from opera to chamber and solo works, the most significant pieces being his concertos and works for orchestra. In 2011 Fagerlund was awarded Finland’s renowned Teosto Prize for his orchestral work Ignite, which the same year was also selected as a recommended work at the International Rostrum of Composers in Vienna. During the 2016–17 season Fagerlund was composer-in-residence at the Amsterdam Concertgebouw.
