Mr. Kullberg has worked extensively with many of the leading contemporary Scandinavian composers, premiering and recording major works by Per Nørgård, Kaija Saariaho, and Bent Sørensen, among others. A two-time winner of the Danish Grammy and an internationally-renowned performer and advocate of contemporary composers, Kullberg has assembled a program that features his favorite modern works by Nordic composers for cello, clarinet, and piano. He's joined by Open G regulars Chris Grymes and Jeremy Gill.

Jakob Kullberg's program includes world premieres by Niels Rønsholdt, Bent Sørenson, Eivind Buene, and Kullberg's own "Song" for clarinet, cello, and piano. Additional works by Kaija Saariaho, Per Nørgård, and Kasper Rofelt.
