CDS 1036-2 Hugo Alfvén (1872-1960): At the Turn of the Century; Cantata for the 1917 Reformation Festivities in Uppsala; The Bells. Lena Hoel, soprano; Karl-Magnus Fredriksson, baritone; Royal Philharmonic Choir of Stockholm; Gävle Symphony Orchestra conducted by Stefan Parkman..

Truly jubilant works, worthy of introducing new Centuries! The Bells gives another dimension of Alfvéns works. All of a sudden this composer of Romantic tradition writes music with a new direction. Great premieres to cherish!.<

"The bright, Christmasy harmonies and novel orchestration create a festive mood. Karl-Magnus Fredriksson's singing is beautifully convincing throughout the piece, which travels through darkness before reemerging into light for a wonderful conclusion" -
