Stockholm Wind Quartet

Stockholm Wind Quartet består av etablerade musiker ur Stockholms musikliv. Medlemmarna har musicerat tillsammans i många år och under år 2016 växte samarbetet i kvartetten fram, bland annat genom deras intresse för instrumentkombinationens unika klangfärger och möjligheter till ett rikt tonspråk. SWQ har gjort konserter i Stockholm, Nyköping, Varberg, Trollhättan, Kilafors, Söderhamn, Sandviken, Hudiksvall, Båstad, Halmstad, Falkenberg och Uppsala, etc. SWQ letar ständigt efter ny repertoar, nya inspirationskällor och möjligheter att utveckla ensemblen.

The Stockholm Wind Quartet consists of established musicians from Stockholm's music life. The members have been playing music together for many years and during 2016 the collaboration in the quartet grew, among other things through their interest in the instrument combination's unique timbres and opportunities for a rich tonal language. SWQ has given concerts around Sweden. For example in Stockholm, Nyköping, Varberg, Kilafors, Söderhamn, Sandviken and Hudiksvall, Båstad, Halmstad, Falkenberg and Uppsala, Trollhättan, etc. SWQ is constantly looking for new repertoire, new sources of inspiration and opportunities to develop the ensemble.

In June 2021, SWQ premiered a commissioned work 'On the slopes of Vesuvius' which represents the various instruments in the ensemble, the four elements; earth, air, fire, water, and a trek up Mount Vesuvio. The music is composed by Maria Lithell Flyg.
