CDS 1019-2 Nathanael Berg (1879-1957): Suite from 'Birgitta'; Piano Concerto in C sharp minor; Symphony No. 4, "Pezzo Sinfonico". Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Per Borin (Suite); Jacob Moskovitz, piano, Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra conducted by Stig Westerberg (Concerto); Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra conducted by Göran W Nilson (Symphony).

Natanael Berg was actually a veterinarian. How many professions are there among composers? Rimskij-Korsakov was a sea officer, Alexander Borodin was a doctor. Modest Musorgskij was a forest inspector. Berwald was at one time director of a factory. It all had to do with supporting ones living. Bergs music is again an example of music which is on a verge of romantic music, this time the music is rather impressionistic in colors. The piano concerto, however, must be considered a full blown romantic concerto. The second movement leaves nothing to be desired. A beautiful, well crafted piece of romantic piano writing. The orchestral works are not far from Delius in style.
