Sven-David Sandström

One of Sweden's most distinguished composers Sven-David Sandström has passed away.

From the start of the Gotland School of Music Composition in 1995 Sven-David was teaching and he was deeply involved in the deveolpment and the success of our school. In 1999 he moved to teach at the Indiana University Bloomington, US. For a number of years he remained our primary guest professor. We remember how it sparkled of inspiration in the eyes of our students as they met him.
