The span of an entire decade passed between Bo Linde’s first symphony and the composition of his second. Meanwhile, he managed to compose a significant number of orchestral works. The first of the second symphony’s (Sinfonia, Op. 23) three movements contains a beautiful cello solo, a little sample of how well Bo Linde handled the instrument (something which revealed itself a few years later in the cello concerto). The second movement, Toccata, is an intense, passionate and forceful piece of music that the composer wanted to be performed "con ira" (with fury). The movement seems to twirl and spin artistically around this musical nucleus. It differs significantly from the considerably lighter touch in the concluding movement, which becomes almost thoughtful toward the end. Under the direction of Sten Frykberg, the Radio Orchestra premiered Sinfonia in a radio broadcast on September 17, 1961. Between 1949 and 1952, the teenager Bo Linde traveled on four different occasions to the great Nordic music conservatory libraries in Stockholm, Helsinki, Copenhagen and Oslo. During Linde’s fourth visit, his Sinfonia Fantasia (Opus No. 1) premiered in the Norwegian Radio studio, performed by the Orchestra of the Philharmonic Company with Öivind Fjeldstad conducting. Bo Linde wrote Sinfonia Fantasia in the autumn of 1951, during a time when he was diligently commuting between Gävle and Stockholm, where he studied at the Academy of Music. Linde was a student of professor and composer Lars-Erik Larsson who also taught Hans Eklund, Jan Carlstedt from Orsa, and Maurice Karkoff. These four notable musicians have been referred to as "Larsson’s Quartet." Bo Linde’s 35th birthday, January 1, 1968, was also the premiere of one of his most beloved orchestral works, Pensieri sopra un cantico vecchio. Bo Linde plays with a familiar 16th century melody, Lo, How a Rose E’er Blooming, weaving small portions of the original hymn throughout Pensieri. This becomes a starting point for the composer who offers us richly imaginative music with elements of a waltz.
