When the Soviet army marched into Prague in 1968 Torbjörn got the impulse to complete the Symphony no.2 (“...for freedom”), already commenced at the time of the 1956 Hungary crisis, but not completed then due to lack of time. He was now an established composer, and the piece was well received at the première with Malmö Symphony Orchestra under his own direction in 1971.
Torbjörn Iwan fell ill in the spring of 1993 with cancer, and life and composing slowed down. He had less contact with the
music scene in Stockholm since his move to the provinces and now it ceased almost completely. All available strength was used to complete the rediscovered symphony he had surprisingly found in his archive, which originally was intended to become no.5, but now was numbered 9. The Symphony, which he called Survival after a series of successful treatments for the disease, and the song-cycles Chamber Music to texts by James Joyce and Pour l’éternité to texts by Jean-Luc Caron were his last completed works. At his passing, an unfinished score of the Symphony no.10 and another try with the Sarek Symphony were found on his desk.
Recorded live at Folkets Hus, Stockholm, 27 September 1972 (Symphony no.2), and at Idunteatern, Umeå, 22 April 1999 (Symphony no.9)
