Notes and Editorial Reviews

Allan Pettersson grew up in Stockholm under harsh conditions. After receiving his diploma in violin and viola he joined a Stockholm concert ensemble, performing until 1951, when a rheumatic disease forced his retirement as a performer. The Six Songs are from his early period as he began composing at the age of 24. The Barefoot Songs were composed in the early 1940s and are much more influenced by his later compositional style which also encompasses the 16 symphonies, plus several concertos and choral works. - Sterling, (Translated from Swedish) Allan Pettersson grew up in Stockholm under harsh conditions.
