Rolf Martinsson is one of Sweden’s internationally most represented contemporary composers. During the past few years, his music has been performed in several countries, in venues such as New York, Vienna, Paris, London, Berlin, Prague, Madrid and Tokyo. His co-operation with Håkan Hardenberger, which commenced in the late 1990s, opened the doors to the international stage following the first performance by the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra under Neeme Järvi of Martinsson’s trumpet concerto Bridge. This was an immediate success, and Hardenberger has since performed the work at some 50 different concerts, for example at the Berliner Philharmonie. Martinsson has taken part in many international co-operation projects together with leading conductors, soloists and orchestras. In 2005, the BBC Symphony Orchestra commissioned and premiered Martinsson’s Cello Concerto with Mats Lidström as soloist and Mario Venzago conducting. Rolf Martinsson also co-operates on a continuous basis with the major Swedish orchestras. The Malmö Symphony Orchestra has during the past few years performed all his orchestral works and solo concertos.
