Torbjörn Iwan Lundquist (1920-2000) was a Swedish composer, mainly recognized for his film music and his symphonies. • When the Soviet army marched into Prague in 1968 Torbjörn got the impulse to complete the Symphony No. 2 (for freeedom), already commenced at the time of the 1956 Hungary crisis, but not completed then due to lack of time. He was now an established composer, and the piece was well received at the première with Malmö Symphony Orchestra under his own direction in 1971. Torbjörn Iwan fell ill in the spring of 1993 with cancer, and life and composing slowed down. All available strength was used to complete the rediscovered symphony he surprisingly had found in his archive, originally intended to become number 5, but now numbered 9. The symphony, which he called Survival after a series of successful treatments for the disease, and the song cycles Chamber Music to texts by James Joyce and Pour l’éternité to texts by Jean-Luc Caron were his last completed works. At his passing, an unfinished score of the Symphony No. 10 were found on his desk.
