Re: Atterberg Symphony 5
A score of the first movement of this work can now be downloaded for free from STIM, btw, likewise for his sym.9 (ms full score of the Visionaria -has- been published- the university library near me has it - but not so easily accessible as that download of the sample first movement alone...), and partial or complete scores of works by quite a few other Swedish composers, so for reviewers with score-reading ability it would be nice to sometimes see that they'd made use of that, anyway (one really can learn a lot about a recording and piece even from just following one part of it in score while listening to a recording. Oh, like "I didn't realize they cut all those pages without saying a word about it in the notes!"... (a wise conductor might hold off until a later movement, considering :D
Other sources too; Swedish Musical Heritage (has Stenhammar's 1st symphony complete in typeset free (downloadable) edition), some other works; IMSLP of course...
Or one can just imply "it would cost me an arm, leg, time..." - which anyway is true in _most_ cases, and I'm wholly sympathetic - and one understands. No worries anycase...
