Pity no new recording of the Violin Concerto - which certainly warrants a new recording - or a recording of the Cello Concerto Angry Embarrassed Undecided Cry

The Larsson Symphony No.3 is an impressive and attractive work and it is good to have a modern alternative to the elderly BIS recording. It was an incredibly odd decision on Larsson's part to withdraw his symphonies for so much of his life. At least he relented before it was too late.

The revelations however (and I know we had downloads from radio broadcasts) are the Three Orchestral Pieces and the Adagio for Strings. Composed in free 12 note idiom these are translucently beautiful compositions and I wish Larsson had written more music in this vein during the last 25 years of his life. It is a great pity that CPO could not have found space for Larsson's "Due Auguri" of 1971. These works demonstrate how the use of 12 tone need not be a barrier to musical beauty!

(But beware: the final piece on the disc "Musica permutatio" begins with an enormous bang!! Coming just after the quiet, subdued ending of the Adagio for strings it just about gave me a cardiac arrest!)

(Also note that the works on this new disc were recorded in 2011 and have taken 7 years to reach us. The works on the simultaneously released new Braunfels disc were recorded in 2007 and 2009. A decade has passed before CPO has made these recordings available. This is an intolerable situation!! It means that there is music which we know CPO is recording, we know the conductors and orchestras, we are thereby "encouraged" to look forward to the release of these pieces, yet in some cases some of us may well not live long enough to hear them because of the outrageous delay in getting the music onto cd. By this token the Holbrooke which CPO recorded some months back could be released sometime in the 2020s!!)
