Duo Dialog

Dan Larsson & Magnus Grönlund

The guitar with its wealth of colours and tones, and the clarinet with its great dynamic potential – together they create chamber music that is both delicate and varied.

Over the years, the critically acclaimed Duo Dialog, comprising clarinetist Dan Larsson and guitarist Magnus Grönlund, has inspired Swedish composers to write new music for this special combination. Duo Dialog has on this cd recorded a collection of new works by Kristina Forsman (b. 1970), Kent Olofsson (b. 1962), Ingvar Karkoff (b. 1958), Arne Löthman (b. 1954) and Sven Hagvil (b. 1953) – composers of diverse expressive styles spanning the rhythmically playful, the improvisational and the refined.

Duo Dialog has performed many well-received concerts at Swedish chamber music festivals and in churches. Dan Larsson has been solo clarinetist for the Östgöta Wind Orchestra for many years. Guitarist Magnus  Grönlund has received scholarships and been the finalist in a number of international competitions.
