Christian Lindberg and the Norrköping Symphony Orchestra here present Symphony No.6 by Allan Pettersson.

This symphony has come to be overshadowed by the success of the Seventh which was premiered a year later.

It is nevertheless an imposing work: an almost hour-long single-movement symphony in which the composer established a specific, self-contained musical style which would serve as a basis for the three symphonies that followed.

Christian Lindberg - ‘whose affinity with Pettersson’s idiom is manifest’ (Gramophone) - has previously conducted the three Concertos for String Orchestra (BISCD1590), as well as the first ever performance and recording of the First Symphony (BISCD1860).
