Lars-Erik Larsson

Posted by: In: Composers 21 Mar 2012 Comments: 0 Tags:

Lars-Erik Larsson (1908-1986) was born in Åkarp, in south Sweden. He studied in Stockholm and with Alban Berg and Fritz Reuter in Vienna and Leipzig, then worked for the swedish radio and taught at the Stockholm Conservatory as well as at the Uppsala University where he held the position as musical director.

Larssons style is varied, ranging from swedish nationalistic neoclassical style to serial music, a technique which he is said to be the first swedish composer to use.



Here’s a youtube clip of “Romans”, from his in Sweden extremely popular “Pastoralsvit”: I don’t know who plays it and it comes with some kitchy pictures (and some nice ones, too) but it was the only recording I found where the tempo wasn’t too slow for my taste.
