Britta Byström’s careful ear for musical qualities such as timbre and resonance has resulted in an idiom that could almost be labeled impressionistic. She began composing already as a teenager and later studied composition at Musikhögskolan in Stockholm with Pär Lindgren and Bent Sørensen. She has written pieces in almost every genre – chamber music, vocal music, even an opera – but orchestral music remains her main focus. Her music has been performed by the Swedish and Norwegian Radio Symphony orchestras and from 2007-2011 she held the prestigious title of composer-in-residence at the Västerås Sinfonietta.
