Two exquisite works of chamber music, illustrating the apogee and conclusion of national romanticism in Swedish music: Tor Aulin's virtuoso, impassioned violin sonata from 1892, and Algot Haquinius' polychromatic string quartet from 1928 with its combination of impressionism and Nordic idiom.

The two Swedish composers on this CD were active during the same period, between the 1850s and 1870s, in the same city, Stockholm, and in the same building, The Royal Opera. Also at the Royal Opera the eminent singer Fredrika Stenhammar was a soloist - both Norman´s Waldlieder and Söderman´s Digte og Sange were dedicated to her.

Ludvid Norman (1831-1885) - a pianist, conductor, teacher and music critic with a solid, versatile training behind him, tirelessly campaigning to hoist Swedish music out of a morass of stagnation and stultifying amateurism. Norman, together with Franz Berwald, was the only symphonic composer of real note in 19th century Sweden. His listed output also include many chamber compositions of sterling quality, including over 80 songs.

August Söderman (1832-1876) - also with a musical education both Swedish and international, but above all posessing a wide found of practical musical experience as theatrical director of music and widely popular for the personal, engaging quality of his music.The bulk of Söderman´s output was incidental music for the stage. Many of his instrumental compositions are adapted from stage music, arranged folk music and so on, but above all he is noted for his vocal music, a few "high-romantic" ballads, and very many solo and choral songs.

Image Septet / String Quartet
The child prodigy of the violin, Franz Berwald, was from an early age tempted to write for his instrument. At 22 he composed a personal and unconventional string quartet in G minor, perhaps the foremost composition from his youth. An even more mature work is his Septet in B flat major, a sparkling chamber symphony with the same scoring as Beethoven¹s classical works.

Erik Gustaf Geijer has one of the most many-sided profiles in Swedish cultural history. Member of parliament, history professor, philosopher, poet - and composer. His music fuses late-Gustavian classicism from the 18th century with the new age¹s romantiscism and realism.

The late 18th and early 19th centuries were one of the great periods of the string quartet in Sweden. Of the three quartets presented in this première recording, Wesström's provides an excellent example of Rococo, Eggert's a mature specimen of the classical quartet, and de Ron's a somewhat freer form of Viennese Classicism. The quartets are played by the internationally renowned British ensemble, The Salomon String Quartet.

The Ballad of Marshal Stig´s Daughters inspired Ludvig Jospehson and Agust Söderman with a fascinating drama, first performed at the Stockholm Opera in 1866. The scene is Norway in about 1290, and Marshal Stig´s daughters in exile find themselves in the middle of the contest between King and Church - and love. In this recording, for the first time ever, Söderman´s incidental music is palyed in its entirety and in its stage context, with excerpts from the drama performed by actors from the Royal Dramatic Theatre in Stockholm.

Wilhelm Stenhammar, to a greater extent that most other Swedish Romantics, was intent on achieving the unique in every single work, as in the three making up this recording. They are the well-known Serenade, with it´s shimmering, lively orchestration, the sensitive and poetic incidental music to Tagore´s drama Chitra, and, finally, Midwinter - a rhapsody on traditional folk tunes and a folk chorale, stern and ponderous.

King Erik Jedvarsson of Sweden was murdered in 1160. The holy martyr became Sweden's national saint, and on the 18th May every year the Historia of St. Erik - consisting of plainchant and miracle stories - was performed in medieval churches and monasteries all over the country. This Swedish-Hungarian joint project has revived a treasury of song which is more or less the only music to have come down to us from medieval Sweden.

In Johan Helmich Roman's day, the orchestral sinfonia was something new, a field for experimentation. Roman, "the father of Swedish music" was one of the early exponents.

The "Great Power" period of Swedish history inspired a vision of the Baltic. The coastal provinces were conquered and there developed a Germano-Swedish Baltic culture. In this community, music became a part of a "Gesamtkunstwerk" designed to pay tribute to God and the earthly ruler. Other music was completely untrammelled by the vocabulary of power. Both aspects are present in this production, comprising first-time recordings of Baroque music by Johann Valentin Meder, Michael Hahn, Ludwig Busbetzky and others.

Wilhelm Peterson-Berger is a captivating and controversial Swedish composer and critic whose musical idiom is distinct personal. He was often inspired by folk music, and here in the third symphony, "Same-Ätnam", he pays homage to Lapland by incorporating several Lappish yoiks. From the same period are "Romance for Violin and Orchestra", with its austere as well as gently lyrical character, and the song cycle "Gullebarn´s Lullabies", where Verner von Heidenstam´s heavily symbolic poetry has been interpreted with grandiose simplicity and naive humour.

"Hail to the Thunderer... the Lion cometh." Sweden's "Age of Greatness" in the 17th century was a period of musical brilliance, with tributes to the warrior king Gustavus Adolphus as well as church concerts and intimate courtly music. A fitting conclusion is provided by Albrichi's setting of the Lord's Prayer, which was performed on Queen Christina's abdication in 1654, when Rome acquired a Swedish queen and Sweden its first composition in its own language. Performed, on Baroque instruments, in mean-tone intonation.

The official opening in 1908 of the new Dramaten building in Stockholm betokened the transition from one epoch to another. Dramaten, or The Royal Dramatic Theatre, was now established as the national theatre. Another change led to a more modern kind of incidental music - the aim now being not only to create atmosphere but to express something of the drama and to suplement events on stage.

Kraus and Vogler were also very much interested in symphonic music, as this recording testifies.
