Here comes the rest of Book1 of Frösöblomster. In "Congratulations" a boisterous and not always completely coherent party congratulates us very cheerfully. The next two pieces are my favourites. In "At Frösö Church" we have escaped to the peace and serenity outside the beautiful church, where bells and organ can be heard. But it becomes late and we must go back. "At Twilight" is a dangerous time where we have to watch our steps lest we trod on the small goblins that have come out to play mischief (Swedish folklore is full of them); it can also be beautiful when we see the fairies dance. The piece is clearly inspired by Grieg's "Trolltog". The final "Salutation" must be a farewell for this time, with a hope of returning next year.

Hi Joachim,
Like the others, these are nicely played! My favorite is no. 7. To me, it sounds like Grieg's "Puck". Maybe that's what you meant by "Trolltog"?
They are on the main site now.

Thanks Monica! Yes it does also sound like Puck, though I actually meant Trolltog, eg https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=asoKCwsmGbY
