Swedish Polka  [2'31]

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Hugo Alfvén (1872–1960) was a Swedish composer whose output included five symphonies and much vocal and instrumental music. He composed several pieces that achieved popular international success, including the first of his three Swedish Rhapsodies. Another was the piece recorded here, which was originally entitled Roslagvår (‘Spring in Roslag’) or Roslagspolketta (‘Roslag Polka’) and gained international currency during the 1950s under the more approachable title Swedish Polka.
