Comments
Not a profound piece but very enjoyable. Much better than the warm up pieces that many orchestras play. Sort of a Scandanavian version of Russian Rimsky-Korsakov through Shostakovich with some British film score touches.

Poor sound for 1943 on both.

Slightly better high end on ATS but bad rumble which is easily filtered.
