If you love musical discoveries made-easy to discover check out https://www.gso.se/en/gsoplay and listen to the music – new to me – of Wilhelm Stenhammar (1871 –1927). A Swedish composer, conductor and pianist little known outside his country, he does not merit neglect, as his music is simply beautiful – purely Romantic, perhaps influenced by Sibelius but very much unique. The Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra (of which I am a big fan) has posted several of his compositions on the occasion of his 150th anniversary. The American-born Swedish maestro Herbert Blomsted guests, leading the Gothenburg musicians in several performances of Stenhammar’s music, among them the gorgeous Serenade for Orchestra.
