5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific in all respects., 9 Feb 2014

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Atterberg: Symphonies Vol. 2 [Neeme Jarvi, Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra] [Chandos: CHSA 5133] (Audio CD)
The Second Symphony is probably a good entry point into Atterberg's music. It dates from 1911-1913 and I suspect that it would appeal, for example, to admirers of Sibelius's Second Symphony. The recording is great and Neeme Jarvi, a conductor I greatly admire, brings an epic grandeur to this approachable work. This version certainly meant more to me than the other two recordings I have of this work (enjoyable as they are). The folk inspired No 8 features my favourite Atterberg movement - the slow movement and I bet that once you have heard the main tune, it will stay in your mind. The last movement is not, in my view, of the same standard of inspiration as the other three, but I would still not miss this disc.
