Just discovering Atterberg don't know why he's not better known he was obviously a genius!This is a great record the 2nd movement of the piano concerto is mindblowing - check out the symphonies too.

Marvellous

I have enjoyed the Piano Concerto so much. Atterberg's music is great - lush textures, swooning melodic lines and memorable tunes. I like this piano concerto more than Tchaikovsky's No.1 in the same key (but then I've never particularly warmed to his music other than the ballets). I heartily agree with the reviewer below "Albums like this remind me of why being a Romanticist is such fun".

Great CD

Cornelius

This is a great CD for lovers of late Romanticism. Thoroughly enjoyable, and a more effective, more passionate recording on the CPO label. Albums like this remind me of why being a Romanticist is such fun.

Exhilarating music.

A truly powerful and magnificent performance. I highly recommend this album for anyone who enjoys 20th century classical music. I wasn't familiar with this Swedish composer until recently. Interestingly, Atterberg started his musical training around the same time he studied engineering. He spent most of his life working for the Swedish Patent Office, evidently composing music on his free time (you can read more about him on Wikipedia.org). You can also hear the influences of such Romantic-era composers as Brahms, infused with a modern, almost-dissonant feel. The result is highly enjoyable. I only wish the names of the pianist and cellist were listed. Otherwise, this album is definitely worth the 6 downloads in my opinion.
