Svanen (Swan) (For Voice, Violin And Piano Or Harp). Composed by Elfrida Andree (1841-1929). Edited by Susan Pickett. For Voice, Violin, Piano (Or Harp). Score and parts. 13 + pages. Hildegard Publishing Company #491-00636. Published by Hildegard Publishing Company (PR.491006360).

It was illegal in mid-19th century Sweden for a woman to act as church organist. Elfrida Andree, a Swedish woman who was also an organist, was responsible for overturning this ban, an early effort that led to a lifetime of music-making and, ultimately, an impressive body of work. Of the more than 100 Andree compositions, editor Susan Pickett was especially taken with Svanen, which appears to date back to the 1880s. The present edition is based primarily upon the first publication (1890) and Andree's own orchestral version, retaining the Böttiger text in French, German, and Swedish, along with critical notes. For intermediate to advanced performers.
