Overtura. Allegrissimo

Orchestras / Ensembles

ConductorJärvi, Neeme
OrchestraGothenburg Symphony Orchestra
ComposerStenhammar, Wilhelm

The impressionistic gleaming Serenade for orchestra is considered by many to be the greatest Swedish orchestral work. Stenhammar probably started to plan it in 1906-1907 when visiting Italy. The first performance was not a success. The original second movement, called Reverenza, was discarded. The original versions of the outer movements have disappeared. In 1920 the new five-movement version was played by the Gothenburg SO under the direction of its principal conductor - the composer himself. In this version the Reverenza movement is added in its original place.
