I know little about Viktor Patrik Vretblad except for his dates: (5 April 1876 — 15 January 1953).
However, our member, Dabchurch has found out some important information, which I include here:
"He worked for the Swedish Post Office and eventually became its Controller. He was also a music critic; a writer about early Swedish music and an organist in Stockholm. He mainly published piano pieces but also composed a number of organ works including a Prelude and Fugue in D Minor."
THANK YOU, David!
"Andante religioso, Op. 14" is relatively brief, quite chromatic, and very expressive.
This is the second time that I have uploaded this piece. It was very popular the first time, and if it's new to you, I'm quite sure you will like it.
This performance features the sweet, slightly stringy foundation stops, the expressive Clarinette of the Positif, and the Seraphon Gedeckt of the Grand Orgue.
If you are looking for a sweet and unique piece, THIS one is the one for you!
The score is attached below, as well as a photo of Patrik Vretlblad.
Notice that he is some Reger on the music rack. I suppose that there is some similarities between the music of Reger and Vretblad, but the differences are still significant.
