Misc. Comments

Wanted of course- the other 4 works. All 5 pieces have been recorded on the 2005 CD "Complete Piano Music [by Peterson-Berger], Volume 4" Swedish Society SCD1089, played by Olof Höjer. There is also an orchestral version (first performed 1923.) "Based on musical ideas [Peterson-Berger] had written down during his stay in Rome and Sorrento" according to the Swedish Society program notes (written by the pianist).

Not clear when the Lundquist publication is from - could be from the 1930s?
