Image Barfotasånger (Complete Songs)
From 1950 and onwards, Allan Pettersson was mainly occupied with working on the monolithic symphonies for which he is best known. But before that, while still a student at the Conservatory in Stockholm and later a viola player in the Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra, he composed two sets of songs: Six Songs and Barfotasånger (Barefoot Songs). Of these two, the second would become especially important for the composer, who returned to it throughout his life, quoting various songs from it in his symphonies. In Barfotasånger he set his own poems, full of autobiographical detail and using a highly personal, archaic language. Several of the songs reflect his childhood, as the youngest of four children growing up in a poor working-class neighborhood in Stockholm. All but two of them are in a minor key, in an idiom which alludes to folk songs, hymns and popular songs. They are here brought to sometimes painful life by Peter Mattei, one of the great singer-actors of our time, supported by Bengt-Åke Lundin, with whom he first collaborated almost 30 years ago, on an album of songs by Wilhelm Stenhammar.

Image Vogler to Netzel: Swedish Organ Culture in the 19t
The organ played an important part in the changing musical climate of 19th century Sweden. Despite this, its repertoire of the time has remained largely forgotten. In this release, several premiere recordings are presented, which still represent only a fraction of the rich repertoire of the 19th and very early 20th centuries. We also touch upon many examples of the parallel development of organ construction and repertoire in Sweden. The recordings document five historic organs, in original or restored condition, and music that has been relatively unknown is brought to the forefront. For instance, several important but rarely represented female composers have finally been recorded.

Image Trasighet och Fransar



Den skånska sångerskan Iris Bergcrantz röst har beskrivits som känslofull, klangrik och vacker. Till albumet "Trasighet och fransar" har hon valt ut sina favoritkompositioner av Olle Adolphson. Slutresultatet är en perfekt kombination av hennes personliga röst och Olle Adolphsons unika sångskatt, i storslagna arrangemang med både stråkar och blås.

”Iris Bergcrantz griper tag i lyssnaren med sin starka känsla. Mest av allt tycks hon utgå från en känsla. Hon gör det i varje givet stycke och utan att egentligen bekänna sig till någon särskild genre. Det faller tillbaka på ett förhållande till musiken och till texterna som kanske närmast påminner om principen med blues. När det griper tag om lyssnaren blir uttrycket större än ramverket, och lyfter i sin tur allt runt omkring" (Johannes Cornell, Dagens Nyheter)

Jan Allan firar 70 år på jazzscenen!
"Denna dubbel-cd innehåller exempel på hur våra tidiga orkestrar kunde låta när det spelades upp till dans i Folkets Park under 1950-talet.
Musiken på Dansrestaurangen Nalen kom att stå modell för många orkestrar ute i landet som ofta imiterade storband som Count Basie, Duke Ellington eller Stan Kenton. Själv kom jag att spela med Carl-Henrik Norins Orkester 1955-1958, med arrangemang av Carl-Henrik, Georg Riedel, Bengt Hallberg, Claes Rosendahl, Gösta Theselius och Gunnar Svensson." (Jan Allan)

Två konserter inspelade live på Village Jazz Club i Västerås 1991, med oktett respektive nonett. Medverkande:
Jan Allan, Rolf Blomquist, Hans Åkesson, Erik Nilsson, Torgny Nilsson, Lars Bagge, Ove Lundin, Rune Gustafsson, Georg Riedel och Johan Dielemans.

Image At Home with Hugo Alfvén
During his lifetime, Hugo Alfvén became known as one of Sweden’s principal composers of his time, with works that struck a chord with a wide audience. As a result of his popularity, a nationwide collection was held in celebration of his 70th birthday in 1942, with the proceeds used to build Alfvéngården, the composer’s home during his final years. Now, 80 years later, Elin Rombo and Peter Friis Johansson are releasing their tribute to Alfvén’s 150th anniversary, recorded at Alfvéngården using the composer’s own piano. Alfvén is primarily known for his orchestral music – including the ubiquitous Swedish Rhapsody No. 1 – and as a composer of choral music. As befits the setting, the focus of the present disc is on more intimate works, however – namely songs and piano pieces. Some of the pieces are closely related to the venue – Fyra låtar från Leksand (Four Tunes from Leksand) is a piano version of folk tunes collected from a local fiddler and Så tag mit hjerte (‘So take my heart’), Alfvén’s most frequently performed song, was composed there in 1946 as a present to his wife.

Image Nielsen & Sibelius: Violin Concertos
Carl Nielsen and Jean Sibelius, alongside Grieg the two giants in Nordic classical music, were both born in 1865. Both also received their first musical training on the violin, earning valuable insights when it came to writing for the instrument. Their respective violin concertos were composed some six years apart – Sibelius’ in 1904-05 and Nielsen’s in 1911 – and belong to the most performed works of either composer. They are nevertheless as different from each other as are the artistic temperaments of their makers. While retaining the traditional three-movement concerto form, Sibelius composed something closer to a Late-Romantic orchestral tone poem giving the orchestra unusual prominence. Nielsen on the other hand opted for an unconventional form, reminiscent of the Baroque concerto grosso: the spiky, neoclassical work is nominally in two movements, but with each movement having a slow and a fast section. These works are here performed by Johan Dalene, the Swedish-Norwegian winner of the 2019 Nielsen Competition. The present disc is the 21 year old violinist’s third release on BIS, following a recording of the Tchaikovsky Concerto described as ‘one of the finest violin débuts of the last decade’ in BBC Music Magazine, and an all-Nordic violin-and-piano recital awarded distinctions such as Diapason d’or and Gramophone’s Editor’s Choice. Dalene is given the expert support of the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra and conductor John Storgårds, incidentally a violin soloist in his own right.
