After the war Knut Nystedt soon turned to neoclassicism. «The watchword is ‘Bach to Mozart and Bach’. Not to compose as they did, but we have so much to learn from their form and logic.»

Development within traditional framework

Knut Nystedt (b.1915) began to compose during the war years and was awarded a prize for one of his first compositions, Introduction and Passacaglia, in 1943. After the war Nystedt soon turned to neoclassicism. «The watchword is ‘Bach to Mozart and Bach’. Not to compose as they did, but we have so much to learn from their form and logic.». He realized these ideas for the first time in Concerto Grosso for Strings and Three Trumpets (1946). In Symphony for Strings, opus 26 (1950), Nystedt further developed his techniques eployed in opus 17. Despite his classical point of departure, he has managed in a sense tpo create something new within a traditional framework. The symphony is characterized by dramatic rhythmic structures, infectious humour and a well balanced form.
Concertino for Clarinet, English Horn and Strings, opus 29 (1952), is composed in the same chamber music style. The concertino is a good example of his ability to use melody to evoke lyrical moods, as in the adagio movement.
