This album includes a large portion of the orchestral works written by Ludvig Norman (1831–1885), 'The Swedish Brahms', including his masterpiece work, Symphony No 3, performed by the Oulu Symphony Orchestra under Johannes Gustavsson. Ludvig Norman was a highly fascinating artist who inspired a generation of Swedish composers and was widely respected, although his Third Symphony was first performed only after the composer's death.
