CDS 1045-2 Wilhelm Stenhammar (1871-1927): As you like it; A dream play (arr. Hilding Rosenberg); Romeo and Juliet (arr. Hilding Rosenberg). Various soloists; Helsingborg Symphony Orchestra conducted by Arvo Volmer.
Stenhammar's noble, individual style never fails. The reason why these works are never heard is that they were written as incidental music to plays performed at the Lorensberg Theatre in Gothenburg. 'A Dream Play' and 'Romeo and Juliet' have been assembled into concert suites by Hilding Rosenberg, who retained the beautiful shifts of mood in the score to 'A Dream Play', especially the sweeping. Sibelian orchestral tutti at the end.
