CDS 1063-2 Gustaf Bengtsson (1886-1965): Violin Concerto in B minor (1941); Cello Concerto in A minor (1932). Tobias Ringborg, violin; Mats Rondin, cello; Malmö Opera Orchestra conducted by Mats Rondin (Violin Concerto) and Tobias Ringborg (Cello Concerto).
There is one word for Bengtsson's music. Craftmanship. He is a Swedish Romantic allright -but his musik is more general in style than folkloristic. The soloists change place as conductors -they are both highly qualified to do so. You will love these concerts!
"This disc gives us a companionable pair of concertos that will appeal strongly to romantic nationalists everywhere" - MusicWeb
