Swedish Romantics: Strindberg in Music



Aulin should have written more for orchestra. He is intense and personal at the same time. The Mäster Olof music is here depicted as a drama, apart from the lovely second movement with its beautiful oboe idea. The music is very variable, as the drama. The storm is an exciting adventure, and the last movement in the suite a grotesque overblown march! The Rangström piece is everything you might expect from a stinging Strindberg drama. Music depicting white heat and suspense. The timpani has a field day.
