Hans Gefors' opera "Christina", based on the drama by Lars Forssell (1968) and world-premièred at the Royal Stockholm Opera in 1986, was one of the biggest successes ever in new Swedish music drama, and was even telecast. This CD is based on the opera, and Lars Forssell's poetry is also represented, by the piece "En obol", specially written for Birgitta Svendén's expressive mezzo-soprano. "Hans Gefors is a dramatic composer. He works with sonorities and rhythms but also, not least, with melodies which are beautiful and pre-eminently singable." (Gefle Dagblad) (label info)
