Program note:

Tillvaratagna effekter is a redefinition of the concept “violin concerto”, taking as its point of departure a minimalist tradition, but sampling freely from music history and not letting itself be bound by any genre. It is life-loving and shamelessly hedonistic, yet strictly structured music.
The title of the work translates, very roughly, to Lost and Found, and the music concerns itself with transformations of something well-known into something unknown: Melodies get stuck or are played simultaneously at different speeds; scales keep ascending beyond all reasonability; musical practices get exaggerated and distorted.
This hour-long work consists of one movement in each major and minor key, and a final movement going through all the 24 keys.
