Self-taught as a composer, Kleven at the age of 23 produced Lotusland, his first orchestral work, and was praised as a master of orchestration. Skogens Sovn incorporates certain avant-garde tendencies and shows Kleven starting on a path towards expressionism. The 1926 premiere of Symphonic Fantasy turned into the greatest musical scandal of the decade.
Finnish conductor Susanna Malkki was director of the Stavanger Symphony Orchestra during 2002-2005. She has conducted contemporary works assisting Thomas Ades at the Almeida Theatre and also guest conducting with the Birmingham Contemporary Music Group.
