|1||Rainbow Suite: The Choral Music Of Mikael Carlsson||14||Audio||2011-05-31||MovieScore Media|
Composer and music producer Mikael Carlsson, born in 1971 in Halmstad, Sweden, devotes most of his composition activities to choral music. His a cappella suite Rainbow Suite, commissioned by the Swedish Church and premiered in 2009 by the [a2648614] of Göteborg, was recently released on CD coupled with a selection of his other a choral works, including Agnus dei, O Magnum Mysterium and Pater Noster.
Mikael studied piano as a child but is an auto-didact when it comes to composition. His intimate knowledge of the choir comes from his own experience as a singer and devoted advocate of the modern choral repertoire. As a composer, Mikael has also written music for film and television.
His main occupation is in the film music business, where he is a household name in the soundtrack industry, having produced over 120 score albums working with composers such as the multiple award-winning [a574618], [a594052], [a1144528], [a226453] and [a467426]. Mikael is also frequently hired as a film music concert producer. He recently merged his two musical venues – choral and film – in a unique programme: a choral concert devoted to film music performed by the Coro Ziryab of Cordoba during the 7th International Film Music Festival in Ubeda, Spain.
