      Nordisk Suite (2016) is inspired by the glasslike melancholy that can be found in the Nordic folk tone. The work is meant to be perceived as three songs for flute and marimba, which is reflected in the structure of the movements as well as in the fact that the melody is always front and center. 

      The first movement is a continuous stream of notes in both instruments, like beads on a string. 

      The second movement is a sad and longing song like that from a lone shepherd on a mountainside. In the middle of the movement the flute starts to soar over a sea of gently rolling waves in the marimba. 

      The last movement is a playful and energetic dance that utilizes displacing the melodic phrases across the sense of pulse.
