Labels: , ,

Hemifrån by Oskar Linberg. Conducted by Michael Bartosch with the Gavle Symphony Orchestra.

Oskar Lindberg (23 February 1887 -- 10 April 1955) was a nationalist/romantic composer who in 1939 edited the Church of Sweden's hymnbook. His 1912 Requiem was of particular importance to the history of Swedish liturgical works.
He wrote in a romantic idiom which blended features of composers such as Rachmaninoff and Sibelius with folk music and impressionistic elements.
