Swedish Romantics: Oskar Lindberg Orchestral Pieces
Oskar Lindberg: The symphony, again the composer is easily recognizable. The symphony starts with a real rush but the writing is partly more bold than usual, side theme close to Rachmaninov, a composer that is close to Lindbergs heart. The slow movement again is rich of woodwind ideas and we are again in the middle of the dark Swedish forests, surrounded by mystery. Again the last movement is filled with force and heat. Even Meyerbeer seems to be close in the brass idea! Particularly the last movement in the Travel Suite has a memorable theme idea, easy to remember. Again the affinity to Rachmaninov is obvious.
