As mentioned on icethesite’s Facebook page in March, Benny Andersson’s score for Palme, which already secured him a Guldbagge, Swedish film award, is nominated for HARPA – Nordic Film Composer Award 2013.
Benny has been interviewed on video in English by the website mynewsdesk.com talking about the process of writing a score and specifically what it meant to write the music for Palme, the documentary about former Swedish prime minister Olof Palme who was murdered on a street in Stockholm in 1986.
The award ceremony this year will be held in Norway during the Trondheim International Film Festival ‘Kosmorama’.
The award ceremony, held on Sunday 21 April in the Olov Hall will be broadcast on NRK P2.
UPDATE 21 April 2013:
Benny misses out on HARPA award for his score for ‘Palme’. The prize goes to Tuomas Kantelinen, Finland “Puhdistus” (Regi: Antti Jokinen).
