About

The Lindblad Symphony is not unknown. The music, inspired by Schumann, Mozart and contemporaries, is one of few examples of Swedish symphonies during the middle of the 19th century. The very ending of the Symphony with its sudden stop and ending is very unusual. Ölander's Symphony is somewhat similar in style. He actually was a customs officer but also a very gifted early romantic, also with a truly great opera, Blenda, where also the composer shows a remarkable gift for melody. Perhaps it may sound a bit strange but the most memorable in the whole disc is the trio of the Ölander Scherzo. Here the composer is way before his time, perhaps this trio is forboding both Peterson-Berger and Alfvén. Please note that the recordings are done at very different times, you may have to adjust your volume control accordingly. A special mention must be made regarding the conductor Mats Liljefors, who unfortunately is spending most of his time abroad. A truly gifted, but shamefully neglected Swedish conductor.
