Notes & Reviews:
Composed for the 1744 celebrations at Drottningholm Palace of the marriage between the Swedish crown prince Adolf Fredrik and Lovisa Ulrika of Prussia, Johan Helmich Roman's Drottningholm Music is a key work in Swedish art music. Consisting of 24 individual movements, it forms an inventory of short pieces suitable for providing the proper musical ambience for the royal celebrations, which took place over four days.
"Roman's music teems with ideas, all delightful and inventive...Manze has passed on his outstanding experience in early-music techniques to the modern instruments of the Helsingborg Symphony Orchestra, with crisply bowed strings, transparent articulation and phrasing, and at times revealing some remarkable colours" - BBC music MagazineNotes & Reviews:
