About

This CD takes its material from a remarkable radio performance in 1984 with excerps from the opera. Lars Runsten was responsible for the radio adaptation and Ulf Söderblom, doyen of Finnish Opera since many years back, was the conductor. The Peterson-Berger opera takes place among students at the Uppsala University during the heyday of Swedish imperialism around 1640. Peterson-Berger has made a stunningly comical opera, rich in melody and orchestration, extremely well sung by several great Swedish opera singers. The beautiful and poetic Aubade sung by Mikael Samuelson became well-known during Peterson-Berger's lifetime, as well as the orchestral fugue - again masterly conducted by Ulf Söderblom.
