Bättre än ingenting...

I was really hoping to give this post a title something like: "Dude, the Dude conducts Pettersson!!!" The "Dude," by the way, is Gustavo Dudamel, music director of the Göteborg Symphony Orchestra. People seem to always forget that he has this orchestra as well; they only talk about his LA and Simon Bolivar gigs. Anyhow...

On 28 April 2011 the Göteborg Symphony Orchestra announced their 2011-2012 season, and I am pleased to say that Pettersson did make it onto the schedule. However, if you were guessing that it would be either the Barefoot Songs or the Symphony No. 7, you guessed correctly! You can check it out here

As it appears that, for some people at least, Pettersson is only about the two works mentioned above, Göteborg probably won't hear any more Pettersson for a while after next year, as the Symphony No. 7 was recently performed, in May 2010.
