Whatever may be issued from now on, this is my Record of the Year 2014. Production, booklet, recording, SACD, DVD etc. are all of the highest level. And add to that the ridiculous low cost of a production this large. Where will you find a record company who delves deep into his pockets to make this possible? And after that, I can buy it for as low as 15 Euro’s, delivery included? Forget the repetitive reissue after reissue by the likes of Decca, EMI, DGG and others who try to wrench some Euro’s/Pounds out of your pocket for the umpteenth Klemperer-Edition, Haitink The Philips Years, the Colin Davis Legacy or 100 recordings of Sacre du Printemps in a box. Invest your money into this. A real investment this is, because this music will not appeal to you in one or two incidental hearings. You better need to be alone in your room and concentrate on this symphony, push the volume somewhat louder to get a real concert hall feel, or even better, try this with headphones on, a revelation!, and you’ll be absorbed by 70 minutes of sound you’ve probably never heard before. Pettersson’s music is difficult, be warned, it’s bleak, it’s nothing if you don’t listen, it’s unrewarding if you don’t invest. Mr. von Bahr, founder of BIS records says: ‘The music of Pettersson is about as demanding as anything I heard, ever, not for the harmony or even texture, but for the emotional drama unfolding by this horribly sick, constantly in excruciating pain being human being. It is emotionally taxing to the point of exhaustion. I knew him, and I know why he wrote what he did. I would actually recommend a watching of the DVD […] before listening to the music. The understanding of the music will be much easier (if "easy" can ever be applied in this case).Read more ›

I couldn't agree more with Charles Voogt's review: BIS are a pioneering label with the highest production values and this latest release only adds to the impression that Allan Pettersson was not only a neglected twentieth century composer but a truly great one. His neglect, so we're led to believe, is less down to the emotionally demanding nature of the music an dmore down to the orchestral players simply disliking because it is so hard to play. The Norrkoping Symphony orchestra, however, are in the process of dedicating years to his work and deserve the highest commendation for that.

I like the references to the minimalist like procedures at work here though this is far more demanding and satisfying music. After the soulful middle symphonies the Ninth incredibly manages to make a busy,almost uniformly quick tempo symphony work thoroughly convincingly over seventy minutes. others have recorded this and taken much longer but Christian Lindberg, who is on a mission to promote Pettersson's music in a manner close to Bernstein's promotion of Mahler, plays this at the tempos asked for by the composer without ever making it sound rushed or strained. One remarkable thing about this symphony is how Pettersson allows the work to draw to a measured and calming conclusion with the cadence at the end almost sounding like a sly joke (humour's not something you'd normally associate with this composer). The important thing is that it works as a convincing conclusion despite all that's gone before.

I don't want to add any more other than to say, if you haven't discovered Allan Pettersson's music yet, starting perhaps with his barefoot Songs and the Seventh Symphony you'll find a demanding but hugely rewarding voyage of discovery lays ahead of you.
