A truly great discovery! Here is the first and foremost Swedish Romantic opera. Written probably in a frenzy of love. Stenhammar was very young when he wrote this opera. Probably one can discover a lot of Wagner in this opera with all its leitmotifs. What is truly remarkable is that Stenhammar already at this young age had found completely his personal style. It is for me unbelieble that this wonderful work has been performed so seldom in Sweden. Just listen to the remarkable folk music inspired second act and the gripping end. The music here raises above the local drama and becomes something broadly humane about love and relationships. Should be heard at opera houses around the world. I hope this first recording ever will lead to this.
