Transient Light could be described as a cross section of my current compositional work. Through the music flows material that I have used and developed in my compositions over the past years. The piece is dedicated to Hervé Joulain whose expressive musicianship served as an inspiration for the work.

Sebastian Fagerlund currently works as a freelance composer based in Helsinki. Recent orchestral works include a Violin Concerto for violinist Pekka Kuusisto commissioned by the Tampere Philharmonic Orchestra and a Concerto for Guitar and Symphony Orchestra commissioned by The Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra. In 2011 Fagerlund was awarded Finland’s most renowned music prize, the Teosto Prize, for his orchestral work Ignite. The same year Ignite was also selected as a recommended work at the International Rostrum of Composers 2011 in Vienna.

His music has been described as flowing, fast-moving and rich in sound. The fast flow and rhythmic elasticity are often offset by fragile and lyrically sensitive episodes, and the shift between mobility and immobility is in fact one of the salient features of Fagerlund’s music. A highly virtuotic instrumental feel and a strong sense of musicianship is manifested in all his works creating musical dramas in which powerful expression is combined with intensity and communicativeness.Fagerlund has been Artistic Director of the International Rusk- Chamber Music Festival in Jakobstad in Finland since 2013.
