CDS 1014-2 Ture Rangström (1884-1947): Symphony No. 1 in C sharp minor, "August Strindberg in Memoriam"; Symphony No. 3 in D sharp minor, "Song under the Stars". Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra conducted by Leif Segerstam (No. 1); Helsingborg Symphony orchestra conducted by Janso Fürst.
Even Rangström has a very personal style. The Strindberg symphony is a dark, intense piece of symphonic writing. The big fanfares is somewhat reminiscent of Rimskij-Korsakov. There is a dark, brooding quality in Rangströms music. Easy to discover in the second movement in the Strindberg symphony..
