Celebrating 35 years with publisher Noteria/Norbergs
Early years – Publishers
Thomas Åberg began composing in the mid-1970s, and his début came in 1978 with a performance of music by the keen young enthusiasts of the Skeppsholm Group which was then active. From the beginning he had none thoughts that his music would be performed by musicians outside this group. But after composition studies with Stig Gustav Schönberg 1981-83 his works were noticed by organists such as Gotthard Arnér, Lennart Svegelius, Per Thunarf who performed several of them at their concerts.
