Aware of the fact he would not have to live for much longer, the Swedish composer Anders Eliasson reluctantly agreed to be interviewed by the Austrian broadcaster Peter Kislinger in his tiny and bare flat in Stockholm’s Gamla stan in July 2012.
In this rare document, directed by the Austrian filmmaker Marilie Fröhlich, the conductor Sakari Oramo, the late John-Edward Kelly (alto-saxophonist and conductor), Tony Lundman (author of Eliasson’s official biography), and Peter Kislinger give insights into Eliasson’s life, his personality, and the man’s unique music that is not based on a musical diction or a style, but merely on ‘an alphabet’, music for which there are neither concrete models nor predecessors.
Anders Eliasson passed away in his flat on the 20th May 2013, a few weeks after his 66th birthday, and a few days after he had managed to complete his String trio “Ahnungen”.

Biography: Anders Eliasson was born in 1947 in the province of Dalecarlia in Sweden.
From 1966 – 1972 he studied at the Royal College of Music in Stockholm with among others Ingvar Lidholm (composition) and Valdemar Söderholm (harmony and counterpoint).
As far back as the 70s Eliasson was recognized as one of the most interesting Swedish composers. His orchestral works Canto in Lontanza (1977), Turnings (1978) and Canto del vagabondo (1979) were particularly acclaimed, as well as the wind quintet La fièvre (1978) and the whole series of shorter instrumental solo pieces called Disegno.
