I have just uploaded a couple of works by Allan Pettersson.
During the 1994/95 concert season the Westdeutsche Rundfunk (WDR) organized a series of Pettersson performances in several cities of North Rhine-Westphalia. The intention was to make Pettersson's music more popular in Germany. Many concerts were broadcast live or at a later time. The technical quality is not the best; some orchestras were from small cities and you can hear that they had to struggle hard at times.
I live near Osnabrück which doesn't belong to North Rhine-Westphalia but was included due to the commitment of our then chief conductor Jean-Francois Monnard. He was a great Pettersson conductor and programmed Symphonies Nos. 5, 7 and 8 during his tenure. I guess few of you can claim to have attended live performances of THREE Pettersson symphonies! Unfortunately Monnard's No. 5 hasn't been recorded for broadcast.

An apology: Symphony No. 9 has a small gap at about 46:38 min when I had to turn the cassette.

  I noticed them now. Many many thanks again!! Smiley   Atsushi
