In several earlier works, Pettersson had alluded to his song cycle ‘Barefoot Songs’, but in the present symphony he quotes himself extensively – the melody of Klokar och knythänder (‘Wise Men and Clenched Hands’) appears no fewer than five times in its entirety and becomes crucial to the structure of the symphony. The present disc is the sixth instalment in a series that has received numerous accolades. Included with the new recording is a bonus DVD containing a film produced by Swedish Television after the death of the composer. In the course of the film, here provided with English subtitles, we meet the composer himself, members of his family, colleagues from his time as an orchestral player and musicians such as the violinist Ida Haendel.
Bonus DVD: Sången om livet (‘The Song of Life’) – a 2-hour documentary about Allan Pettersson produced for Swedish Television (SVT)
