A virtuoso pianist and renowned conductor in his day, Wilhelm Stenhammar achieved early success with his magnificently wide-ranging and Brahmsian Piano Concerto No. 1. After many years of mixed fortunes as a composer he found his personal voice in the remarkable Piano Concerto No. 2. Conceived as a single span, this vividly affirmative romantic masterpiece was the wellspring for his Serenade (8.572186) and Symphony No. 2 (8.553888). Award-winning soloist Niklas Sivelöv has also recorded Stenhammar’s solo piano works (8.553730).

Review By Carlhåkan Larsén,Sydsvenskan.se,November 2011

Personligt med pianoprofessorn

Wilhelm Stenhammar har komponerat de bästa svenska pianokonserterna. Men konkurrensen är inte precis stenhård. Hans samtida Alfvén och Peterson-Berger avstod, men Adolf Wiklund, nu halvt eller helt bortglömd, tog med någon framgång upp kampen. Modernisterna hade sedan oftast annat i tankarna än denna slitna gamla genre.

Med sina två verk överraskade den skicklige pianisten Stenhammar sin samtid vid förra sekelskiftet.
