Wow!

(4 out of 5 stars)

"Although the 4th is less satisfying, I haven't listened to a symphonic work as hair-raisingly energetic as Karl Atterberg's Symphony No. 1 since the first times I heard Carl Nielsen's 5th and Douglas Lilburne's 2nd Symphonies! The tension is unflagging from the beginning, each movement flows logically into the next--down to a most satisfying final cadence--, and Atterberg works modal melodies and fanfare-like polyphonies into a work that's both modern and timeless. MORE ATTERBERG, YES, PLEASE!"
Where has Atterberg been?

"With the arresting start of the First Symphony, I was hooked. This is a wonderful performance of a fun, exciting piece that deserves to be widely known, with the strings in particular seeming to relish the many opportunities they have to play romantic, but not trite, melodies. The recording of the Sinfonia Piccola is of lesser quality, but still a worthwhile work. Let's hope more Atterberg will be generally forthcoming."
