Description: A cross-section of Swedish Romantic song from 1850-1930, from Lindblad's folk-tinged pieces in ballad style to Sjöberg's complete published salon-style songs (Björling made The Tones a national hit), to the national Romanticism of Stenhammar and the more European-oriented late Romanticism of Rangström. Swedish-English texts. Torsten Mossberg (tenor), Anders Karlqvist (piano).
