For the second year in a row, the Swedish Composers Association (FST) and the Royal Academy of Music have arranged a presentation day for the new Swedish orchestral music. This year it is organized in the newly built concert venue Malmo Live, with the Malmo Symphony Orchestra as hosts. June 2 the orchestra will perform 10 short pieces for a specially invited audience of the program committee and conductors, in order to extend and broaden the Swedish orchestra repertoire.
