The Swedish composer Emil Sjögren belongs to the generation before Stenhammar, though his musical personality is not so strong and his level of creative ambition more modest. The two violin sonatas come from the 1880s and are finely crafted, the work of a cultured and inventive composer. Excellent performances and recording. Robert Layton
