Ensemble SON consists of some of Sweden’s foremost musicians in the field of
contemporary music united by the identical endings to their last names (a prerequisite for becoming a member). The unusual instrumentation of the founders of the group has forced the ensemble to commission new works. One of the main ideas of the group is to explore “portrait” programs in the broadest sense. For this reason they invite guests to collaborate with them, including “Dr Cayabyab – the death penalty as music,” a portrait of Helmut Oehring, and “Improvisation/Notation” with Barry Guy in music by Barrett, Doyle and Guy.
