Swedish Romantics: Natanael Berg Orchestral Works



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 ones living. Bergs music is again an example of music which is on a verge of romantic music, this time the music is rather impressionistic in colors. 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.
