Allan Pettersson: Concerto No. 3 for String Orchestra

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - James Leonard
This recording of Allan Pettersson's "Third Concerto for string orchestra," featuring Christian Lindberg and the Nordic Chamber Orchestra, is the almost inevitable follow-up to their recording of his "First" and "Second" concertos for the same ensemble. This disc has an advantage over the earlier release because the "Third Concerto" is more characteristic of its composer than the first two; that is, it is darker, gloomier, and more pessimistic.

This disc has an advantage over the earlier release because the "Third Concerto" is more characteristic of its composer than the first two; that is, it is darker, gloomier, and more pessimistic. In terms of performance, the two discs are about equal. Both are well-played by the Nordic Chamber Orchestra, with tight ensemble, focused intonation, and poised balance, and both are cogently conducted by Lindberg, with the details in place but the big picture always in mind.

It could be argued that these qualities are inherent in the music, and that Lindberg is merely serving the score, but fans of the composer are likely to say that there is more to this music than is revealed in these performances. As always, BIS' digital sound is cool, clear, and vivid.
