Notes & Reviews:

This disc offers a fascinating selection of both famous and little-known works by Wilhelm Stenhammar. The 'Serenade' ranks among his finest works, and is considered a classic instance of the "white nights" that characterize summer in Northern Europe. Of the remaining works, the ballads 'Florez and Blanzeflor' and 'Ithaca' are notable examples of his vocal writing, while the 'Interlude' derives from his cantata 'The Song'. 'Prelude and Bourree' is a hitherto unknown work here receiving its first recording. Stenhammar's 'Second Symphony' is available on NXS 8553888 and piano works on NXS 8553730.
