Alfvéns musik

The music


Explore Hugo Alfvén’s musical treasures in his home and during our garden tour. Alfvén’s compositions have a remarkable breadth: from arrangements for very large orchestras to solo songs found on the repertoire of nearly all Swedish singers. And even his work with composing choir songs - of which the undoubtedly most performed are his folk song arrangements. Which composition will become your favorite?
