Editorial Reviews

In 2010 Neeme Jaarvi began his Scandinavian project, offering up idiomatic performances of Norwegian composers. Similar in approach, this new survey turns to Sweden, with Jaarvi conducting the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra in orchestral works by one of Sweden's leading composers of the twentieth century, Kurt Atterberg.

Format: Audio CD
Neeme Järvi devotes considerable attention to the music of lesser-known composers, giving classical fans plenty to discover. This album is filled with early 20th century gems whose late romantic style would have been at home a decade or so earlier. Atterberg, a Swedish composer who lived from 1887 to 1974, spins out one memorable and appealing tune after another, and orchestrates them with color, character, and concision. The performances (Järvi is joined by the Gothenburg SO, Atterberg's hometown band) are vibrant, and the sound is excellent. Every work on this album is a winner. If you've never heard of Atterberg, this is the perfect way to get acquainted. I hadn't heard of him until I heard this album, but now I'm hooked. This is surely one of the year's most appealing classical releases.

I have spent almost three decades in or around the classical music industry, and even longer as a devoted classical fan and ardent record collector. Yet after hearing the Symphony No. 4 on internet radio last week, I asked, "Atterwho?" Atterberg is one of a legion of truly fine composers who never became household names, much less join the Pantheon. In fact, many (like Atterberg) remained anonymous to even cognoscenti who specialize in arcana. As an author friend of mine would put it, Kurt Atterberg is just a brief footnote in a musical history book.

But based on this splendid Chandos release, Atterberg is a composer well worth pursuing. The music is big, bold and gorgeous, and completely tonal. At least based on the offerings on this fine CD from Chandos, he resisted the siren call of serialism, nor was cowed by the Boulezian Reign of Terror post WWII, where composers who didn't write grim, acerbic twelve tone music couldn't get performed. So Atterberg was courageous in an era where courage was sorely lacking (even Stravinsky eventually succumbed to the Academic Mafia.)

But half an hour after I listened to this disc, I realized why he remains "Atterwho?" As wonderful as the music is while you're listening to it, it's not especially memorable. Nothing specific stays with you, not even a brief melodic hook sticks in your head. Much the way a film you thought was great draws a total blank when someone asks you to describe it. You're just left with a general impression that you enjoyed it.

But this disc -- and presumably the complete box set of Atterberg's nine symphonies on Cpo -- is well worth hearing anyway. As always with Chandos, the engineered sound is exemplary, and the performances are lush and first rate.

First of all both of the symphonies are forgotten wonderful melodic creations, especially the 6th symphony. But Jari destroys his version with a finale that has no change of tempi and fails to bring out the great humor inherent therewith.
My advice is to get The Rasilainen conducted versions on CPO Which have all the change in tempi necessary to bring out the simply great humor and melodic invention of the 6th symphony. The sound is also great on the CPO versions.
To sum up, Its great to see Atterberg getting the attention he deserves but Jari is the wrong man for the job. So, the music is beautiful and romantic but is better all around as played by Ari Rasilainen and the Hannover Radio-Philarmonie from 15 years ago. All 9 symphonies are available on CPO at a reduced price. I recommend that whole set over Jarvi.
