Notes & Reviews:

Hardly any objections can be levelled against Peterson-Berger's formal mastery. His developmental episodes are natural, and he has a fine sense of proportions. He was also able to strike a tone of folk character even before this became a part of him. Surprises enrich every listening moment of this first recording - interpreted by Wallin and Derwinger with verve and tonal beauty!

Expedition Audio Recommended
The album concludes with two utterly disarming little works, each lasting less than three minutes, which are also the musical samples for this recommendation. The first is titled Canzone and the second, Visa i folkton (Folktune). They are fairly representatives all of the music here - even though some of it is considerably more animated - and it was quite impossible for me not to share these charmers with you. Enjoy! ... read more ...

American Record Guide, September/October 2013
Violin Sonata 1 was written in 1887. The Svit (Suite) was written in 1896 and shows that P-B had grown in assurance and harmonic sophistication. Retained the Grieg-like tendency for naive, ecstatic lyricism. Two short pieces fill out this program: the Canzona of 1889 and the Visa i Folkton (Folktune) of 1917. His music is expertly composed and emotionally compelling enough to be worth your time. I would like to hear his other two violin sonatas.
