Description of work
Symphony No. 2 “Labyrinths of Time” was written between 2015 and 2016. It was commissioned by Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra and the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra. In this work, the composer posed the question: 'How does the mechanism which controls our ability to remember the past work?', answering:
'My own solution to this mystery is a combination of three keywords: time, pulse, and memory.'
