Recent ”Collector’s Classics”
Caprice CDs

For Vivaopera 28 June 2019 by Nils-Göran Olve

Dear international readers!

This brief note is intended for those of you who take an interest in historical recordings of classical music, and might otherwise miss some recent Swedish issues on CDs (and downloads). They come from the indefatigable veteran restorer of Swedish sound documents Carl-Gunnar Åhlén, whose website lists a huge range of his LP and CD issues now going back 50 years. Many of these have been on the Caprice label in a series called Collector’s Classics, whose issues always come with long and informative notes by Carl-Gunnar. In recent years, and like many small-label releases, you almost need to know about their existence to find them, and sadly the extensive texts are given only in Swedish.

Collector’s Classics Volume 15 can be translated “Under the composer’s baton” (“Under tonsättarens taktpinne”) and consists of one CD each for Swedish composers Kurt Atterberg, Lars-Erik Larsson and Ingvar Lidholm – three important figures in Swedish music during most of the 20th century.
