Atterberg has told us that the Double Concerto for violin, cello and orchestra, alternating between G minor and C major, is the last piece of his music worth performing. “The weather turned awful, and 14 August there was at thunderstorm and the hailstones covered the ground in white. But that pushed the work with my double concerto ahead and he was engaged as Kapellmeister at the Royal Dramatic Theatre in Stockholm, and it became a natural thing for him to be given the first option of arranging old music or composing new pieces for the theatre’s performances. He wrote music for plays such as The Old Play of Everyone, Androcles and the Lion (Shaw), Fedra (Racine), Sister Beatrice (Maeterlinck) that became the beloved Suite No. 3, the music to Turandot (Gozzi) that was transformed to Suite no 4, while Hassan (Flecker) became Suite No. 6, and he wrote music for great Shakespeare dramas such as Hamlet, Twelfth Night, As You Like It, The Storm (ended as an opera), Antony and Cleopatra (Suite No. 7), Julius Cesar and Macbeth (these two for radio), and The Winter’s Tale, from the music to Suite No. 5 which is recorded on this CD.
