About

Irene Mannheimerís rendering of the First Piano Concerto by Stenhammar shows this remarkably gifted pianist at her very best, stylish and romantic at the same time. This is the Atterberg orchestration. There are now two other recordings, both with Stenhammarís own orchestration. I would like to say that the original orchestration used in the two other recordings would be preferable, but the difference is hardly noticeable! Atterberg, having heard the Stenhammar orchestration, had a very good memory indeed! All the recordings are combined with memories of all kinds. My future wife and I were in Gothenburg when the Saint-SaŽns-like scherzo was recorded. In the super-quick string figures at around 2:17 the orchestra had to rehearse at half-speed first, and then when getting it right my fiancťe and I went through the door making noises and they had to do the whole thing once more! See what love can do! Grieg and Tchaikovsky are not far away in the slow movement.
