Although Johan Svendsen was a contemporary of Grieg, he is very much less well known. The blend of melody and melancholy, combined with Norwegian folk elements, that is familiar in Grieg's music, is also evident in Svendsen's, though the execution is different. This disc starts with Svendsen's take on the Romeo and Juliet theme. The opening is moody and melancholy, and overall the piece has nicely developed themes and dynamic contrast. After the final climax, the music, ends in a quiet and reflective mood. Rhapsody No.1 opens quietly with the strings and a repeated solo horn call. These aspects of svendsen's music, seem to evoke the quiet grandeur of the Norwegian scenery and are quite beautiful. The main theme is very different, and may be familiar, as Grieg used the same melody in one of his Norwegian dances. The work builds with various shifts of mood, to an almost triumphant finale. In varying ways, these qualities apply to the other three Rhapsodies, and the disc ends with Zorahayda, another musical offering about two historical lovers. Beautifully orchestrated with plenty of shifts in melody and mood, that keep the listener entertained, and performed by an orchestra with an obvious affinity for this Music.
