Magdalena has recorded chamber music with artists like Barbara Hendricks and the Theremin player Carolina Eyck. As a composer she has worked with different kinds of crossover-projects involving dance, speech and performance. Magdalena is a founding member of Hidden Mother, an ensemble who experiments with scenic music and is well known at European avantgarde festivals. 


She has also performed with most of the Stockholm-based orchestras, including the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra. As a timpanist or principal she has worked in orchestras such as Dalasinfoniettan, Gävle Symfoniorkester and Blåsarsymfonikerna. 


Current projects include the premiere of a solo piece for percussion and mobile orchestera by Anders Lind at Malmö Live 2019, scenic musik written for Hidden Mother by Ivo Nilsson, Maria Lithell Flyg, Alexandra Nilsson and Jens Hedman and the swedish premier of the opera ”Gold” by Leonard Evers for soprano and percussion.
