About

Natanael Berg was actually a veterinarian. How many professions are there among composers? Rimsky-Korsakov was a sea officer, Alexander Borodin was a doctor. Modest Mussorgsky was a forest inspector. Berwald was at one time director of a factory. It all had to do with supporting one’s living. Berg’s music is again an example of music which is on the verge of romantic music, this time the music is rather impressionistic in colours. The Piano Concerto, however, must be considered a full-blown romantic concerto. The second movement leaves nothing to be desired. A beautiful, well-crafted piece of romantic piano writing. The orchestral works are not far from Delius in style.
