Work introduction

Although Larsson studied composition with Alban Berg in Vienna, his encounter with the “new classicism” of Hindemith and others left a more lasting impression on him. The spontaneity and freshness of his music guaranteed its success at the 1934 IGNM Festival in Florence with audiences fatigued by “advanced” pieces (where his Sinfonietta was first performed and immediately taken on for publication by Universal Edition) and in Paris, where his Divertimento was the high-point of the final concert in 1937.
