Notes & Reviews:

"What a strange mixture of the old and new Hugo Alfven's music represents! The slow movement, perhaps the most beautiful part of the symphony, speaks for itself entirely in terms of Romantic melody at its best. A serenely lovely Andante religioso, for strings, harp, and celesta, makes a perfect encore, one that puts the finale of the symphony's straining for heroic effect in its proper perspective in the gentlest and most affecting way. Naxos' sonics for this production are also excellent. Very enjoyable indeed." -Classics Today
