Swedish Romantics: Hugo Alfvén Orchestral Suites

CDS1012
£14.99

Details

If you would like to imagine a Swedish summer morning in full bloom then listen to track 7 on this CD. There is a difference between the two suites here. Both were film music turned into Symphonic suites. Forget about the actions on the films. These works live completely their own lives. The Bygdesaga music is more stormy, the Mans Kvinna (mans women) is more inwards looking, more brooding, but with many lovely very Swedish folk music ideas (try track 8). All very Alfvénish!!
