Jennefelt, Thomas (Lars Ragnar)

(b Huddinge, 24 April 1954). Swedish composer. He studied composition with Bucht and Mellnäs at the Royal College of Music in Stockholm (1974–80) and sang in Eric Ericson’s chamber choir. In 1994 he became chairman of FST, the Society of Swedish Composers.

Vocal works dominate Jennefelt’s output. His breakthrough work Warning to the Rich (1977), with its solid choral writing, became known internationally. In subsequent works he sought to counteract the expressivity of traditional settings, often treating texts syllabically and giving familiar poems new perspectives: his Dichterliebe finds horror and abomination in Heine’s words where Schumann found idyll. His orchestral work Musik vid ett berg (‘Music before a Mountain’) was originally conceived as a melodrama, but the highly charged text was ultimately abandoned in favour of a purely instrumental treatment. The work is nonetheless intended to be performed with ‘dramatic tension as though it were a spoken drama’, and the shadow of a text and a vocal line is almost discernible in the writing for the orchestra.
