Penguin Guide, January 2009

Lindblad is best known for his songs, of which there are some 250. Indeed, he is generally spoken of as ‘the father of Swedish song’. Mendelssohn thought highly enough of the First Symphony to conduct it at Leipzig with the Gewandhaus Orchestra. Gérard Korsten and the Uppsala Chamber Orchestra give splendid accounts of both symphonies, extremely vital and spirited, with infectious high spirits in the first movement of the C major Symphony. And what delightful pieces these are, not strong on individuality perhaps but, like the Weber symphonies, highly attractive. Quite a find, and very good sound, warm and well focused.
