“How is a composer like a pig?
They’re both only appreciated after they’re dead!”
Max Reger, German composer/organist (1873-1916)
Thomas Åberg (b. 1952) was born in Stockholm and works there as composer and independent organist. Most of his works are written for the organ and are characterized by their rhythmic joy, simplicity, and humor. He has stated that ”music must bring enjoyment, without abandoning reverence,” and as such his style often uses the most basic of musical materials to create a discourse that is both spiritual and visceral.
His music has been performed by organists at festivals throughout Europe, Asia, and the USA. He also tours regularly worldwide as concert organist with his own works. Member of FST – Society of Swedish Composers since 1986.Read more
