Description: From the rarely recorded repertoire of Swedish song, we have equal parts of Sjögren's unique lyricism from 1884, the teenage Stenhammar's youthful passion, still influenced by Schumann, in 1888-90, and the elder statesman Peterson-Berger's two groups from 1901 (the rapt, mystical Nietzsche settings) and 1910 (folk-infused settings with daring harmonies). German texts. Matilda Paulsson (mezzo), Bengt-Åke Lundin (piano).
