Born in Fin­land, Se­bas­tian Fager­lund is one of the coun­try’s busiest com­posers. Af­ter study­ing at both the Turku Con­ser­va­tory and Helsinki’s pres­ti­gious Si­belius Acad­emy (un­der com­poser Erkki Joki­nen), Fager­lund has en­joyed com­mis­sions from all over the world. With in­flu­ences as wide-rang­ing as East­ern mu­sic and heavy metal, he com­poses across a va­ri­ety of gen­res, from or­ches­tral works to cham­ber opera. He was com­poser in res­i­dence at the Royal Con­cert­ge­bouw Orches­tra for its 2016/17 sea­son and this year was ap­pointed guest com­poser at the Aspen Mu­sic Fes­ti­val.
