Swedish Serenades


 After the intensity of Sibelius’ 7th we should maybe head across the Baltic to relax a little, sample a smörgåsbord and sip chilled aquavit lightly spiced with caraway, anise and fennel. And the music? Another smörgåsbord! Serenades by Stenhammar, Dag Wiren and Lars-Erik Larsson; and, on the more serious side, a symphony by Alfvén, a piano concerto by Stenhammar and finally, for dessert, Larsson’s delightful Förklädd gud (Disguised God).
