Notes & Reviews:

Kurt Atterberg, one of Sweden's leading 20th century composers, wrote tuneful and charmingly folkloristic music. The second volume of his Symphonies from Neeme Jarvi and the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra. Hybrid Surround Sound SACD

MusicWeb International, 24th February 2014
JSrvi's approach...vividly evokes the natural elements of the Symphony, the movement of Swedish waters, birdsong and flight (wild geese?). There is so much more of a sense of cinematic splendour in JSrvi's reading.

Gramophone Magazine, March 2014
Jarvi ups the tempi considerably, reining in the cental climax to throw the expressive weight on to the final bars...I look forward to Jarvi's third instalment.

BBC Music Magazine, May 2014
Exuberantly fresh-air symphonies, expansively performed here.
