The symphonies of Swedish composer Allan Pettersson cannot easily be classed as conservative or progressive, and it is no surprise that they have been gaining new performances outside Sweden. They are monumental, rather dark, and suggest the sound of a Mahler who had lived to hear atonality more than an avatar of the Scandinavian tradition: Pettersson organizes works around large-scale contrasts and an attempt to encompass vastly different materials. The two works here are quite different but are representative of his style, and they receive fine performances from the Norrköping Symphony Orchestra under Christian Lindberg. These works, like most of Pettersson's other symphonies, are in a single movement: the track listings on the album denote mere breaks in the music. The Symphony No. 5, however, retains aspects of the traditional four-movement form. Sui generis as far as form is concerned is the Symphony No. 7, from 1967. Early commentators took it as a throwback to tonality, and in fact it works toward tonal resolution at the end. But the earlier instances of tonal chords are not resting places at all, but moments that point toward someone else, and there are passages of vast, dark, Mahlerian chaos. Sample the section denoted Bar 255 here for an idea of Pettersson's orchestral canvas. The key to interpretation of his music is a sense of the long line, and here Lindberg excels; moreover, he gets from the Norrköping Symphony a bright edge in the very high string writing that Pettersson favors, just one of the superb regional ensembles Sweden has produced over the years. Strongly recommended for those enamored of the Scandinavian school.

Gounod: the Romantic, the Mystic

A major artisan of the renaissance in French music in the second half of the 19th century, alongside his elder colleague Berlioz, whom he admired, and his followers Bizet, Saint-Saëns, and Massenet, who were inspired by his faith in Art, Charles Gounod (1818-1893), a mystic and a charmer, a romantic in search of a new classicism, owed his fame to a few masterpieces, which have overshadowed his daring. A flourishing discography allows us to discover the diversity of his music: instrumental, vocal, religious, and lyrical.
