Hallén, Andreas: Gustaf Wasa, Romanze, etc.
CDS 1070-2 Andreas Hallén (1846-1925), Gustaf Wasas Saga; Romanze for Violin and Orchestra; Sphärenklänge; Im Herbst; Dämmerungsschein. Gävle Orchestra conducted by Christopher Fifield.
Hallén was a true Wagnerian -but most of his works are or a rather more intimate scale. Gustaf Wasa may have been a king of war or unrest in Sweden but the suite that comes from a play is more subdued and peaceful. The other pieces are also rather intimate -and Hallén's orchestration is very skillful and personal. The opening piece,
, betrays a debt to Hallén's teacher Reinecke.
