My Favorite Music: Kurt Atterberg, Symphony No.2, 2nd movement

Joel Watts recently discovered 20th century orchestral music in the form of The Planets by Gustav Holst. I was all set to leave a recommendation of my favorites and complain about the fact that there is nowhere online to listen to one of my all-time favorite pieces of music, Kurt Atterberg’s Second Symphony, when a quick search turned up that it is now on YouTube. So here is my favorite part, the second movement – of which I particularly love the opening and closing sections. But by all means go to YouTube and listen to the whole thing!
