Wilhelm Peterson-Berger (1867-1942) was a Swedish composer and music critic. He spent his summers exploring the countryside, and fell in love with Frösön, an island in Lake Storsjön in northern Sweden. He built a summer house there, which he called Sommarhagen ("Summer Refuge").
Frösön inspired Peterson-Berger's best-known work, a collection of 21 short piano pieces called Frösöblomster ("Flowers from Frösö Island"), published between 1896 and 1914. Influenced by the Norwegian composer Edvard Grieg, these delightful miniatures invoke scenes of nature and life at Sommarhagen.
Sommarhagen Suite includes three of the Frösöblomster: Förspel ("Prelude"), which depicts the construction of Sommarhagen; Sommarsång ("Summer Song"), an idyllic interlude; and Intåg i Sommarhagen ("Entering Sommarhagen"), the composer's celebration of his completed house.
This colorful concert band suite was written for an adult community band. It's appropriate for a college or community band, or an adventurous high school wind ensemble.
Duration: approx. 10:00. The audio clip includes a concert performance of "Summer Song" and "Entering Sommarhagen" by the Peninsula Symphonic Winds, Dr. Berkeley Price, music director; Joe Siegel, saxophone soloist.
