Description: A full CD (76 min.) of rarely heard modern repertoire on a budget-priced release with Bäck’s 1966 concise, three-movement work, passionate, demonstrative, gritty and sinewy, and the prolific Bentzon offers a substantial piece (1981-82), also in three movements, music of a lively, always-creating mind, and stylistically at times recalling Nielsen. 2 CDs. Erling Blöndahl Bengtsson (cello).
