When Torbjörn Iwan Lundquist in 1962 was asked to compose the music score for the screen adaptation of Selma Lagerlöf’s Nils Holgerssons underbara resa genom Sverige (Adventures of Nils Holgersson), he was already a well-known composer of film music. Since 1954 he had written the scores for 16 films, and three other movies with his music was premièred the same year as Nils Holgersson.

One of the Nobel Prize winner Selma Lagerlöf most dramatized, Gösta Berling’s saga, the depiction of the major’s wife and the cavaliers at Ekeby Manor in Värmland, adapted for radio by Olle Mattsson. The music for the play became so praised that it was released on LP. The suite consists of eight movements.
