About

Stenhammar's noble, individual style never fails. The reason why these works are never heard is that they were written as incidental music to plays performed at the Lorensberg Theatre in Gothenburg. A Dream Play and Romeo and Juliet have been assembled into concert suites by Hilding Rosenberg, who retained the beautiful shifts of mood in the score to A Dream Play, especially the sweeping Sibelian orchestral tutti at the end.
