Notes & Reviews:

This is the 1st of a 4 volume project series dedicated to the orchestral works of the Norwegian composer Svendsen. As a composer, Svendsen was intrigued and inspired by the new trends in music represented by Wagner, Berlioz, and Liszt, a fascination which is evident in the works on this disc. Jarvi is a music conductor noted for his recordings of Nordic repertoire.

Gramophone Magazine
Rightly praised for orchestral mastery, Svenden's music attracted the approbation - and its composer the friendship - of Wagner and Grieg, and Nordic audiences took it and him to their hearts. It is easy to hear why... Jarvi once again draws some refined and vibrant playing from the Bergen Philharmonic and Chandos's warm sound is vivid and bright.
