Erik Nordgren (1913 - 1992)

Erik Nordgren was born in Sireköpinge, Sweden, on 13 February 1913. He studied the violin, conducting and composition at the Stockholm Royal Academy of Music, qualifying as a teacher in 1941. In 1948 he became recording consultant at Swedish EMI/HMV in Stockholm and from 1952 to 1967 he was music director at Svensk Filmindustri. From then until 1976 he was in charge of the orchestra section of the Swedish Broadcasting Corporation. His compositions include concertos for clarinet (1950)and for bassoon (1966), a Chamber Symphony (1944), chamber music, including three string quartets, songs and a considerable quantity of electronic music created in his own sound studio. Nordgren wrote incidental music for some forty films directed by Ingmar Bergman, Alf Kjellin, Lars-Eric Kjellgren, Jan Troell (The Emigrantsm, 1972), Gustav Molander and Alf Sjöberg. Some of his scores for television features make use of electronic music. He died in Stockholm on 6 March 1992.
