Quote from: vers la flamme on September 25, 2022, 07:53:33 AMAnyone listening to this composer lately? I just checked out his 1st symphony. I hate to dredge this up after reading a bit of vitriol on the previous two pages of the thread, but I was indeed reminded of Elgar in places :laugh:
Quote from: vandermolen on September 25, 2022, 10:41:19 PMYes, I think highly of his music. My favourites are symphonies 2,3 'West Coast Pictures',5 'Funebre' and 8 which has a beautiful slow movement.
Quote from: Spotted Horses on September 26, 2022, 07:18:53 AMMy memory of the music (having listened years ago) is that it is not "groundbreaking" but that it reflects wonderful melodic and harmonic invention, and skillful use of the orchestra (orchestration). Perhaps the music could remind someone of early Sibelius, or less neurotic Brahms.
Quote from: vandermolen on September 26, 2022, 07:58:19 AMLove the 'neurotic Brahms' comment!

Quote from: Maestro267 on December 03, 2022, 09:48:07 AMFinally got my hands on the CPO complete symphonies box! Starting off with No. 3 cuz that's what I fancy starting with and wow this is stunningly gorgeous music! Feels like more of it is in B minor than the stated home key of D major. The structure bears comparison with the mighty Bax 6 too, with two 9-10-minute movements followed by a finale almost twice that.

Quote from: kyjo on December 03, 2022, 02:14:24 PMIs this your first time hearing any of Atterberg's music? I'm quite surprised, considering you listen to a wide range of lesser-known 20th century symphonic works. Anyway, welcome to the wonderful world of Atterberg!
Quote from: Maestro267 on December 03, 2022, 11:53:46 PMApart from the odd preview here and there, yes. I feel like I've barely scratched the surface of lesser-known 20th century symphonic works. This set has been on my wishlist for a while, so I'm glad to have it in my collection at last.Decided to start my day with the Ninth Symphony.
