This must be heard to be believed. It is nearly impossible to grasp or understand the background of this monumental symphony. In an interview with the composer just before his death he was asked about his works, nothing in the shelves? Or in a drawer? No, nothing, said Otto Olsson. Not a word about this colossal work! It was indeed found in a drawer after the composer died. It is hardly possible to believe that the composer could really have forgotten this work. It does indeed have monumental proportions. It is unique also in structure. The whole work is nearly 58 minutes long, rather like a Bruckner symphony! The adagio in more than 23 minutes alone! And it must be heard to be believed.
