Neglected symphony: Symphony No. 3 by Franz Berwald

Here’s another offering in my neglected symphony series, the Symphony No. 3, “Sinfonie singuliere,” by the Swedish composer Franz Berwald (1796-1868). Why is it neglected, you ask? I don’t think you can say it has anything to do with the work’s quality. It’s more that the 19th-century classical music culture was dominated by Germans, who forged the canon, who left out Swedes and many others.
