This will certainly be must buy for me but those who know the Symphony No.2 from the somewhat aged BIS recording need to be aware that all three of Larsson's symphonies are relatively early works. His idiom developed and the Variations for Orchestra of 1962 are serial.

I hope that when CPO release the Symphony No.3 (1945) they couple it with either the Cello Concerto (1947) or the later Three Pieces for Orchestra (1960) and 'Due Auguri" (1971).

Added: Oh. Cancel that last sentence. I see that they have indeed coupled the Symphony No,3 with the Three Pieces but have added the Adagio for String Orchestra (a 5 minute work also from 1960 which Naxos has previously recorded) and Musica Permutatio (an 8 minute work from 1980 and the composer's last orchestral piece).
