Magnus Lindberg is one of the great orchestral composers of the 20th and 21st centuries.

Robbie Ellis talks to him from his hotel room in Amsterdam about his upbringing in Finland, his time at the Sibelius Academy, his fascination with electronic music earlier in his career, some of his great collaborators and where his music might take him in the future.
