Quote from: vandermolen on September 26, 2010, 02:14:35 PMThank you Corey and Erato for your replies - I thought that this might be a strong candidate for the Zero response thread award! The problem is that the other CD with Symphony No 4 on seems to be unavailable. Those last string quartets look interesting. I hope to find some more Nordgren soon. I really like the two grimly uncompromising symphonies on the Ondine CD I bought. I find that there is something very humane beneath the glowering darkness of those two fine scores.Here's an interesting obituary from The Guardian:http://www.guardian.co.uk/music/2008/oct/08/classicalmusicandopera.finland
Quote from: snyprrr on September 27, 2010, 06:26:40 AMI believe there's also an Ondine SQ cd. Always on the way back burner.Nordgren, Nordheim, Englund, Holmsberg, Bergholm,... how doooes one keep track, haha??
Quote from: Corey on September 27, 2010, 07:11:06 AMAlso, The Seventh Seal was released in 1957, which meant Nordgren would've been 13 (!) when he wrote it. Wikipedia lists the composer for the music as Erik Nordgren, who I don't think I've heard outside of the film music. I barely noticed the music in Seventh Seal at all apart from the Dies Irae chant.

Quote from: Corey on September 29, 2010, 05:11:18 AMI was able to find this two-disc set on through download called "Meet the Composer" (Finlandia). It has quite a variety of work:Looks like there's one available on Amazon.UK used for £9.99.
Quote from: vandermolen on September 29, 2010, 07:03:55 AMActually that was a very good series, but now rather difficult/expensive to find I think. I have a number of then including ones devoted to the music of Klami, Englund, Madetoja etc.
