The great Swedish composer Wilhelm Stenhammar can be heard as an accompanist on recordings with John Forsell, and as a soloist on a few piano rolls, but never as a conductor. However, his successor, Tor Mann was recorded while rehearsing and performing the famous 2nd symphony, and the Serenade, works he himself experienced under the composer’s baton as an orchestral cellist. Sixten Eckerberg succeeded Tor Mann, and together with the Gothenburg Symphony and pianist Hans Leygraf, he made the world premiere gramophone records of Stenhammar’s important orchestral works.
