Profound thanks to Karl Miller for supplying these Eklund recordings and to John (jowcol) for uploading them for us Smiley Smiley

Eklund was a remarkable composer. I happen to rate him up there with Allan Pettersson as one of the very best of the more modern but not avant-garde Swedish composers.
We already have the symphonies Nos. 1, 3, 6, 7, 8 and 11 but now we have added Nos. 2, 4, 5, and the Piano Concerto. Only the Ninth and Tenth symphonies elude us.

This will provide a wonderful opportunity to sample more of the music of a composer unaccountably ignored by commercial recording companies Roll Eyes Eklund is, apparently, of no interest to Robert von Bahr and BIS Sad

(With the You Tube additions of more previously unheard British music today has been like Christmas-time, unwrapping musical presents Smiley)
