Anniversary Compilation #5 – Romanticism’s door

After Shostakovich’s brutal depiction of Bloody Sunday in January 1905 in Tsarist Russia, Andrea Tarrodi’s Lume from 2009 opens with music of light. And then Roman: EEKK and the Drottningholm Baroque Ensemble! With bitter tears and unfulfilled hope, Petrarch is present in Sten Melin’s expressive composition about the impossibility of love. With Clara Schumann, angels float amongst the lilies and rose-coloured clouds in Venice. In Staffan Storm’s setting of the late Romantic Georg Heym, the infinite opens up in a variety of guises. Finally, Gustav Mahler closes the door on Romanticism. Eric Ericson’s last recording.
