5 snabba frågor till Tom:
Vilken var din första konsert med Sinfoniettan?
My first week with Sinfonietta was as a recording the music of Molly Kien for her Composer Portrait CD. I particularly remember it was my birthday that week and it turned out it was also Mattias Normell’s (who was also freelancing), fun that we are now both members of Sinfoniettan.
Vilken kompositör inspirerar dig mest?
Igor Stravinsky, he wrote in so many completely different styles during his career and often wrote pieces that were considered challenging at the time but are now some of the most popular pieces of classical music. He also writes lots of fun trumpet parts.
“Do or do not. There is no try.”

Normally I am doing a set of breathing exercises to help me get warmed up and focussed for the concert.
