Norrköping Symphony Orchestra/ Christian Lindberg

BIS on eclassical.com

- - eclassical.com has the most cost effective method for legal downloading in the world!! Start with a super deal on Pettersson´s 6th Symphony (as exciting as Mahler 6!!). 50 years ago when Bernstein released Mahler 6 on CBS it was practically unknown.

The comparison is apt; Mahler 6 is for me his "heaviest" and the one I want to hear most infrequently and Pettersson the symphonist has largely passed us by, although he does indeed have a huge following, and this is exemplified by this in-depth review by a real enthusiast.
