Symphony No. 6

 Christian Lindberg Conductor
 Lindberg, Christian

Allan Pettersson’s Sixth forms a compelling and singular edifice, with its slow introduction, a first part characterized by intense activity on a motivic level and a slower second part reminiscent of an immense coda and remarkable for Pettersson’s extensive use of the melody from Han ska släcka min lykta (‘He will extinguish my light’), the last of his own Barefoot Songs. Christian Lindberg – ‘whose affinity with Pettersson’s idiom is manifest’ (Gramophone) – has previously conducted the three Concertos for String Orchestra on BIS, as well as the first ever performance and recording of the First Symphony. This work began in the late 1940s, but although the composer never completed it, he never abandoned it either. Christian Lindberg oversaw the preparation of a performance edition based on Pettersson’s sketches, and his recording of the results was received with great interest at its release in 2011, with critical accolades including the seal of approval from International Record Review (‘Outstanding’), (‘10/10/10’) and Scherzo magazine (‘Disco excepcional’), and praise for both Christian Lindberg and the Norrköping Symphony Orchestra.

Michael Kube - Fono Forum magazine - January 2013

                  ’Critics Choice’

"...Lindberg’s empathy for Pettersson’s music is once again shown in the Sixth, where he catches its dark atmosphere to perfection, pacing its process through the succession of climaxes superbly well..."
Guy Rickards - Gramophone magazine - January 2013

                      ’Supersonic Pizzicato’

Remy Franck - Pizzicato magazine - January 2013

 "... Lindberg has the full measure of this powerfully communicative score, drawing from Norrköping muscians playing of a responsiveness and finesse that in turn underlines the subtleties intrinsic to the music itself... Spacious yet finely detailed sound sets the seal on a release that could well be the ideal introduction to Pettersson’s singular musical vision."

Richard Whitehouse - International Record Review - January 2012

                      **** - Excellent album
