Tobias Lund is producer for lectures and panel discussions at Odeum.
Tobias has a PhD in musicology (2009). His research explores how the aesthetic qualities of music can function as a latent or actual force in historical contexts shaped by social, political, religious and philosophical patterns and conflicts. This charge often arises from the connections of music with other art forms as well as with sound environments of various kinds.
In March 2022, Tobias' monograph Speltoken: Hugo Alfvén och rosens klang (Gidlunds publishing house) was published – an "analytical masterpiece", as Per Svensson wrote in his review in HD-Sydsvenskan.
Since 2005 Tobias has written music and opera reviews for the daily newspaper Sydsvenskan and since 2011 opera commentaries for the Stockholm Concert Hall. In 2010-20 he was editor of the Swedish journal of music research (STM–SJM). Tobias is a member of the Board of the Swedish Society for Music Research and was a member of the Research Committee of the Royal Academy of Music from 2012-17.
