Great to see my Eklund uploads are that well received. I will try to get some more Eklund symphony, there should be a chance to get hold of some of the earlier ones...

ttle, you are right that in general, Scandinavian symphonism is fairly well-represented on disc (at least in comparison to other countries). The gaps you correctly point out are therefore even more striking. Eklund's music is powerful, compact and emotionally appealing. It's really stunning how consequently his symphonies have been ignored by recording companies (except No. 6, to some degree).

I also thought that Baudo might be the conductor of No. 8 (as I had a look at the sites of the Swedish MIC). Like you, I also thought that the work shouldn't have got that many performances so that the chance that it's really Baudo conducting might be fairly good. What then made me a little more careful again is that the performers of No. 7, however, do not coincide with those of the world première, in fact.
