Wallner, Bo

(b Lidköping, 15 June 1923). Swedish musicologist. After studying musicology with Moberg at Uppsala University (graduated 1955), he worked as a music critic for Expressen (1949–53), and was president of Fylkingen (the Swedish section of the ISCM, 1954–6) and adviser to Swedish Radio (1956–74). He was appointed lecturer in musicology and form at the Stockholm Conservatory in 1962 and became professor in 1970. He is one of the most astute observers of the contemporary musical scene in Scandinavia. His articles on Stenhammar’s chamber music, on various aspects of the music of Hilding Rosenberg and on Scandinavian music after World War II led to his monumental Vår tids musik i Norden (1968), a comprehensive, well balanced and well documented account. The activities of an interesting group of young musicians in Sweden during the 1940s (Blomdahl, Bäck, Leygraf etc.) are described in 40-tal: en klippbok om Måndagsgruppen (1971) and he published his great monograph on Wilhelm Stenhammar in 1991. He has also written useful textbooks on musical form and works on music education.
