Notes and Editorial Reviews

Niles-Erik Fougstedt was one of the most prominent figures on the Finnish musical scene of the 1940's and the 1950's. Although best known as an orchestral conductor (Radio Symphony Orchestra 1944-1961)), his activities stretched far and wide; choral conductor, teacher of choral conducting and musical theory and music critic. But it is for his compositions, especially his unaccompanied partsongs that later generations remember him best. Although he composed a great deal of music for large instrumental forces (including two symphonies), it is in his partsongs for mixed and male voices we best hear his independent and honest voice. They portray the culture of Finland's Swedish-speaking minority of the first half of this century.
