CDS 1017-2 Ruben Liljefors (1871-1936): Symphony in E flat major, Op. 14; Piano Concerto in F minor, Op. 5. Irène Mannheimer, piano; Gävleborg Symphony Orchestra conducted by Mats Liljefors.
Liljefors was the leading figure head in orchestral life in the city of Gävle. The symphony, again influenced by Swedish folk-music, is in a personal, densely orchestrated style, with an impressive and moody second movement. All lovers of great romantic piano concertos will surely enjoy this one, by the romantic specialist Irene Mannheimer.
