Helmut C Jacobs recently sent us details of a CD containing three “Cloud Poems” composed by the Swedish composer Bror Beckman (1866-1929).
“At the beginning of the 20th century the Swede Bror Beckman (1866-1923) and the German Sigfrid Karg-Elert (1877-1933)composed numerous works for harmonium which were inspired by the special sound and expressiveness of this instrument. The two composers of the late Romantic period were in contact and thought highly of each other. While Karg-Elert’s works for harmonium are available in numerous recordings, Beckman’s pieces have unfortunately been completely ignored so far. They are published for the first time on this CD”
