Wilhelm Peterson-Berger in 1905

For more than thirty years, Wilhelm Peterson-Berger was Sweden’s most feared music critic. A violinist was famous for saying he wouldn’t even start his performance until Peterson-Berger left the theater. Being so strict and ruthless in his criticism put a target on his back as it was suggested that his own compositions might not have stood up to his own criticism. But more contemporary looks at his music rank him essentially as competent as any Norse composer of his time. This is especially true for its colorful musical depiction of the arctic region of Lapland with its snowy desolation, mountains, winter evenings and summer nights. It’s all in his Symphony No. 3, “Lapland”, today’s noon masterpiece at 2:00 p.m.
