Bo Linde (1933-70) was a Swedish composer. His works are traditional in the best sense: they have inspired performers to program them instead of returning to the classics once more. They are gratifying to performers, enabling them to make the kind of soloistic gestures they love in a fresh context. Both the violin and cello concertos have this quality of performer as well as audience appeal, yet they are clearly 20th Century pieces, if more stylistically akin to the 30s or 40s than to 1958 and 1964, when they were actually written. It is good to know that not everyone decided to go 12-tone after WW II. Actually, there is a certain ruminative and relaxed character to Linde’s music that is more characteristic of music of today than of the period he lived in. Both concertos end with long slow movements characteristic of our new romanticism. It is a pity Linde died so young, or he might have become a mainstay of today’s compositional style. The performances here are lovely.• American Record Guide, August 2006
