winter has just ended and it has been so lovely with lots of skiing. I used the winter inspiration to finalize this orchestral movement.
The first part was much inspired by Smetana's Moldau where he after a tentative introduction plays a folky melody. He wrote this peace while he was working in Gothenburg, influenced by swedish folk music.
For the second part I have borrowed a theme from my countryman LE Larssons's pastoral suite. I adore it and have suggested it to be our national hymn. Maybe you recognize it.
So here is my work.
