Magle is now releasing a composition that was commissioned by Rigshospitalet (Danish National Hospital) for use in the radiation therapy section. Magle composed and scored the piece for symphony orchestra, with the cancer patients in mind, but meaningful for non-patients too. The composition is titled, “The Secret Garden” and is an uplifting, but also reflective and contemplative musical statement. Recorded on March 1st, 2019, by the Serbian symphony orchestra: Orkestar Fakulteta umetnosti, Niš conducted by Milena Injac.
