Congratulations to Jesper Nordin on receiving Järnåkerstipendiet, Sweden's most prestigious chamber music award, for his 2009 piece Pendants. The work was commissioned and premiered by Ensemble Itinéraire and Art Zoyd and recorded on Phono Suecia by Gageego and Pierre-André Valade in 2012.
The citation for the award reads: In Jesper Nordin's works Pendants, we are immediately thrown into an almost improvisational sound world, a world that you want to remain in. Jesper Nordin has a rich palette of colors, emotion and sensitivity. The music is varied from the most tender beauty, the mysterious and dramatic. Jesper Nordin never leaves the listener unmoved, his constant curiosity and openness for timbres and sound brings the listener into a sense of infinity.
