Over to Stockholm this week for one of the regular weekly concerts by the Swedish Radio Symphony, featuring Russian conductor Dima Slobodenjuk and Swedish pianist Peter Friis Johansson in a program of music by contemporary composer Mirjam Tally, Franz Liszt and Sergei Rachmaninoff. Recorded by Sveriges Radio on March 18th.
Kind of a short concert this week (a little under an hour), so it all fits on one player. The program goes like this:
1. Mirjam Tally: Density
2. Liszt: Totentanz
3. Rachmaninoff: The Rock - symphonic Poem
Announcements are in Swedish and were a little long-winded, so they've been edited down.
For you note takers:
1. Mirjam Tally: Density, uruppförande av P2:s beställningsverk.
2. Franz Liszt: Totentanz.
3. Sergej Rachmaninov: Klippan, symfonisk dikt.
Solist: Peter Friis Johansson, piano.
Sveriges Radios Symfoniorkester. Dirigent: Dima Slobodenjuk.
Konsert 18/3, Berwaldhallen.
The Tally is a bit intense but really good. Otherwise it's perfect Anti-Road Rage Wednesday music.
Pull over to the side of the road and breathe deeply.
