Martin Fröst - Anders Hillborg's Clarinet Concerto (Peacock Tales)

This video presents a 21st-century musical scene where music, virtuosic playing, corporal expression, and computerized technology become one. With all elements beautifully orchestrated, one sees, hears, and experiences the Clarinet Concerto (Peacock Tales) by Swedish composer Anders Hillborg. Adding magic to this intense piece with his playing and nimble body movements, Martin Fröst leaves the viewer in awe.

Fröst's management released the video in tandem with a 2006 interview granted to the website Clariperu. The interview of the artist is in Spanish.

WOW! I just heard this on BBC Proms, via the Internet and was utterly amazed. Searched the Internet to see if someone had recorded a performance of this piece and found this video. Thank you so much!!!
