CDS 1029-2 Albert Rubenson (1826-1901): Drapa; Symphony in C minor; Symphonic Intermezzo; Trois Pièces Symphoniques. Umeå Symphony Orchestra conducted by Roy Goodman.
Rubenson: what a character! Starting off as a composer with fresh ideas, returning from Germany in the mid 1850s, he ended up as a strongly conservative professor at the Stockholm Musical Academy. What a sad fate, with many promises unfulfilled! Goodman regards the composer as a very interested figure in Swedish musical history - with many gifted ideas - linked to Schumann.
"Attractive and unassuming music with a smile and a wink. Recommended" - MusicWeb
