Notes & Reviews:

This selection of orchestral works marks the transition between the more traditional music and the music of the 'progressive' composers active in the 1920s. Amongst the best known are the individualist Harald Saeverud who explained that his music grew 'out of the Norwegian soil and the landscape - not from Norwegian folk-music'.
