Johan Helmich Roman “the Father of Swedish Music” There are gaps in the available recordings of his works. One outstanding instance being the music chosen for this production: “12 Suites for Keyboard Instrument”. Like, say, the music of J. S. Bach, which is very often performed on a modern grand piano, Roman’s music sounds both natural and living when played on modern instruments. This music needs to be brought to life for a new generation of record listeners and repertoire-questing pianists, both in Sweden and further afield. Then there will be no reason for not expecting Roman’s name to have a chance of emerging from its remarkable obscurity as that of a composer for keyboard instruments and acquiring international standing, thereby reinstating him as “the Swedish virtuoso”.
