Magnus Lindberg   (Born 1965)

conductor

Magnus Lindberg (b.1958) is one of the internationally best known Finnish composers of today. His musical language is usually highly complex yet highly full of vim and verve - rationalistic and pragmatic at the same time. When New York Philharmonic's new Music Director Alan Gilbert appointed Lindberg as the orchestra's composer-in-residence - and even opened his very first night with the first performance of EXPO - it was seen as a strong artistic statement by the American press. The New York Times wrote: "Alan Gilbert made a statement about his artistic priorities by opening his first program as music director with the premiere of a work by Magnus Lindberg." And the Baltimore Sun wrote: "Lindberg's appointment was an immediate sign of Gilbert's intentions in New York."
