This album is a collection of recently recorded Chamber music by the Swedish composer Maria Lithell Flyg. There's a saxophone quartet, a duo with piano and cello, an oboe quartet, a duo with soprano saxophone and percussion, a duo for two violins and finally a piece for barython, piano, violin and a vocal ensemble. Maria Lithell Flyg has always been driven by curiosity, a hunger for learning, and a desire to express herself. The path to becoming a composer had its twists and turns, even though she began crafting lyrics and tunes at a very tender age. Though Maria had her formal training relatively late in life, she has already composed a significant number of pieces for some of Sweden’s finest musicians, such as the Stockholm Saxophone Quartet, Cecilia Zillacus, Olle Persson, Musica Vitae, and others.
