Karin Hellqvist – Ida Lundén

One and the Other (speculative polskas for Karin) is the title of a composition by Liza Lim, created in collaboration with violinist Karin Hellqvist. Hellqvist says: ‘it provides a compositional structure from which I can access the embodied knowledge that developed over years of hosting traditional fiddle music within my body.


Liza Lim (born 1966 in Australia) is a composer, educator and researcher whose music focusses on collaborative and transcultural practices. Beauty, rage and noise, ecological connection, and female spiritual lineages are at the heart of recent works.
