I’m so delighted and thrilled to go to Stuttgart and start the artist in residence tonight with the SWR Big Band. Let’s play some great music together.
The program “Kulturstudion” in Swedish Television has shown a documentary about the opening of the new Royal College of Music in Stockholm. Magnus and his music is a part of the documentary. To see the program you just click on the link below. Enjoy!
Magnus receives this Year’s Thore Ehrling Scholarship!
The jury’s motivation:
Now, twenty years after his death, we can be sure that Thore Ehrling would have been delighted by the news that the jury of his foundation specifically selected Magnus Lindgren to this year’s scholarship. Thore Ehrling’s orchestra was no longer there, since many years, when Magnus was born in Västerås in 1974, but it was certainly an inspiration for his brilliant career as a jazz musician with saxophone, flute and clarinet as his instruments, but also as an excellent arranger and composer with great success in both Sweden and internationally. Completely in Thore’s spirit!
