Ulf Wallin tackles Pettersson’s massive Violin Concerto No. 2

Christian Lindberg made a thoroughly convincing argument of the inherent drama of Pettersson's music while emphasizing the fact that there is ultimately a song informing the music.  Even in his native Sweden, performances of Allan Pettersson’s orchestral music are few and far between; most performances feature the composer’s generally accessible Symphony No. 7. This evening’s performance of the Violin Concerto No. 2 was the third Pettersson orchestral work (Symphony No. 5 ...

Details and the big picture: Christian Lindberg in Pettersson’s Symphony No. 5

In Petterson’s Symphony No. 5, Lindberg shaped and controlled the latent tension so effectively that the music felt deeply oppressive, almost suffocating in its intensity. Patience is definitely a virtue with regards to the Allan Pettersson symphony project on the record label BIS. This project began in the early 1990s with the Norrköping Symphony Orchestra (SON) under the direction of Leif Segerstam but was left incomplete. Following a long hiatus, the ...

Le Projet Allan Pettersson continue avec la Symphonie 14

Jouer la musique d'Allan Pettersson à la fois avec passion et conviction est vraiment une réussite majeure, et l'Orchestre symphonique de Norrköping sous la direction de Lindberg y parvient encore une fois. On pourrait faire valoir qu'il existe d'innombrables compositeurs dans l'univers de la musique classique qui ont été injustement négligés. Les raisons en sont nombreuses : le compositeur est trop étrange, la musique est trop difficile à jouer, trop difficile à diriger, ...

The Pettersson project continues: Christian Lindberg and the Norrköping Symphony

To play this music both passionately and convincingly is truly a massive achievement, and the Norrköping band under Lindberg’s direction have done it yet again. One could argue that there are countless composers in the classical music universe who have been unjustly neglected. The reasons for this are many; the composer is too unfamiliar, the music is too difficult to play, too difficult to conduct, or too difficult for the audience ...

Christian Lindberg ose un doublé Allan Pettersson à Norrköping

A ceux qui pensent qu’il n’est pas sérieux de mener une double carrière de soliste et de chef d’orchestre, Christian Lindberg (notre entretien) apporte un net démenti. A la tête de l’Orchestre symphonique de Norrköping, il a fait preuve de son incroyable vitalité dans un programme réunissant deux symphonies d’Allan Pettersson séparées par une œuvre de sa propre composition où il accumulait les rôles de compositeur, chef, récitant et… tromboniste ...

Christian Lindberg performs Pettersson Symphonies 4 & 16 in Norrköping

The Norrköping Symphony Orchestra has a long history of performing and recording the still relatively unknown Swedish composer, Allan Pettersson (1911-80). This began in the late 1970s with Okko Kamu’s blistering rendition of the Symphony No. 6, followed by a series of BIS recordings with Leif Segerstam in the 1990s, and continuing now with the ever-energetic Christian Lindberg. In this concert Lindberg conducted both the Symphony No. 16 and 4, ...
