Here is the assured and sweeping Symphony No. 1 in B Minor by one of my favorite composers, Sweden's Kurt Atterberg (1887-1974). The work was completed in 1909 when the composer was all of 22 and already the distinctively 20th Century Romanticism and marvelous orchestration that characterize Atterberg's mature style are abundantly clear.
