Notes & Reviews:

"Willen conducts in a less sentimental fashion than Alfven sometimes receives and it is perfect for this film music. He also has an excellent sense of tempo... Given the low price and the fact that that many listeners will already have previous volumes by Willen in the Naxos Alfven series, this disc is a must for Alfven fans and, due to the specific qualities of the music, even those who do not otherwise warm to him." -MusicWeb

Willen and his brilliant Norkopping Symphony are the perfect advocates of these works, and in their hands all of Alfven's imaginative orchestration and penchant for colour and invention are brought out in masterly fashion. A hugely attractive issue full of exciting romanticism. Sound and notes are first-rate.
