A delicate soundscape of excellence and innovation!
Founded in 2008, this Gothenburg-based flute quartet aims to push the boundaries of music by incorporating poetry, electronics and improvisation into its performances. The group has developed a unique soundscape that truly touches its listeners. Over the years, 40f’s desire to expand the boundaries of what a flute quartet can do has earned the group a significant amount of interest among composers. The quartet has collaborated with electronica trio World Domination and recently finished a tour as Artists in Motion for RANK, the Swedish national organisation for new muisc. Besides giving recitals, the quartet has also worked with young musicians, teaching music appreciation and free improvisation through a series of workshops.
Next year (Concert season 2015/2016) the quartet will tour with a recital program based on two completely new pieces by composers Ellen Lindquist and Anders Jormin, combined with Steve Reich’s minimalistic hit “Different Trains” – originally composed for string quartet. Don’t miss this!
