Notes & Reviews:

Drawing on the rich melodic traditions of the folk music of his homeland, Alfven created vivid and stunningly orchestrated scores. While justly remembered for his popular "Swedish Rhapsodies", his First Symphony is a highly individual work, full of melancholy and drama. This is the only available recording of these works at this price!
