Composer Anders Hillborg gained his first musical experience singing in choirs and in various forms of improvised music. From 1976 to 1982 he studied composition and electronic music at Stockholm’s Royal College of Music, where his teachers included Gunnar Bucht, Lars-Erik Rosell, Arne Mellnäs and Pär Lindgren. Brian Ferneyhough, guest lecturer at the College of Music on several occasions, was also an important source of inspiration. Hillborg has primarily been a full-time freelance composer since 1982. His sphere of activity is extensive, covering orchestral, choral and chamber music as well as music for films and pop music. His works have been performed by all the major orchestras of the world, including the Philharmonic Orchestras of New York, Berlin, LA, and Chicago Symphony, among others. He has worked with Esa-Pekka Salonen, Alan Gilbert, Gustavo Dudamel, mezzo soprano Anne Sofie von Otter, and soprano Renée Fleming.
