Wilhelm Stenhammar's early music draws on all aspects of late romantic music. This album from the Gotenberg Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Neeme Järvi, captures this development. The first CD presents two works from his late romantic period, including his first symphony which he later withdrew, and which is thus rarely heard

WILHELM STENHAMMAR - Symphonien No. 1 · No. 2 - Serenade op. 31 - Excelsior! - Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra - Neeme Järvi. CD 1: Stenhammar - Excelsior!, Symphony N. Karl Wilhelm Eugen Stenhammar (1871 - 1927). Symphony N. in F major (1902-03). Andante con moto.
Except for the aforementioned Serenade and a couple of overtures, all of his important symphonic and concertante works are here, plus a generous helping of shorter vocal works and some incidental music. The two Symphonies were taken down at live performances under Neeme Järvi; both are terrifically exciting under his direction and played with utter convictio by the fine Gothenburg orchestra. I was introduced to the music of Stenhammer with a BIS recording of "Excelsior!", and just loved the wide-open, lush bombast and unrepentant romanticism of this little overture, and wanted to hear more.
