Natanael Berg – Symphony No. 1 “Everything New Must End” (1912)

Or, as the Oracle famously put it, “Everything that has a beginning has an end, Neo.” Here’s a Swedish composer from my favorite period in that nation’s musical output – Carl Natanael Rexroth-Berg being slightly older than Kurt Atterberg and slightly younger than Wilhelm Petersen-Berger, both of whom are composers that I highly recommend.

    Philosopher kings are the rulers, or Guardians, of Plato’s Utopian Kallipolis. If his ideal city-state is to ever come into being, “philosophers [must] become kings…or those now called kings [must]…genuinely and adequately philosophize” (The Republic, 5.473d).
