  1. “The Quintet for Clarinet and String Quartet” was composed in 1929-1930. At the time the work was considered so ‘modern’ and difficult it was not performed until 1952 in the chamber music society Fylkingen, Stockholm. (Source; score notes)
    First performance May 10, 1952 Stockholm, Fylkingen. Tore Westlund och Ivan Ericsonkvartetten
