Swedish composer Daniel Nelson has worked extensively with orchestras such as the Swedish Radio SO, Orchestre National d’île de France, Trondheim SO, Royal Swedish Philharmonic, Nordic Chamber Orchestra, Manchester Camerata, Västerås Sinfonietta and several others in Scandinavia, Europe, and the United States. His Metallëphônic (2002) for tuba and orchestra has since its premiere been performed more than forty times around the world. Mr. Nelson’s music has frequently been recorded for radio broadcasts and CD’s. In addition, his orchestral fanfare Force of a Rainbow has been televised several times from the Swedish Radio SO:s annual Epiphany concert, and more recently by the Royal Swedish PO at their annual concert-in-the-green, an outside concert before an audience of 35,000 people. In 2011 his first opera, Pride and Prejudice, was premiered at the Vadstena-Academy summer opera festival to great critical acclaim as well as an enthusiastic audience response. Mr. Nelson has written a considerable amount of music for dance, amongst other may be mentioned #JAG with choreographer Christina Tingskog which was written for the Royal Swedish Opera in 2016, as well as the two-act ballet The Little Prince which was premiered by the Nordic Chamber Orchestra and Norrdans in 2015.
In 2015, Daniel Nelson received the Carin Malmlöf-Forssling Prize in composition from the Royal Swedish Academy of Music.
