During the 1890’s active as a violinist, partly in the Swedish Royal Orchestra
[Hovkapellet], partly as a soloist. Between 1910 and 1939 he served as director
musices at the University of Uppsala. He was also an internationally
appreciated conductor of his own and other’s works, and 1910-47 a celebrated
leader of the men’s choir Orphei Drängar [the Servants of Orpheus], with whom
he performed numerous vast tours. (...) Alfvén’s interest in Swedish folk music
and Swedish folk songs penetrates the larger part of his works. He has thereby
contributed to an international interest in Swedish folk music. Many of Alfvén’s
works have reached lasting popularity. In addition to "Midsommarvaka"
[Midsummer Wake] there is, e.g., "Festspel" [Feast Play] (1907), the romance
"Skogen sover" [The Forest is Sleeping] (1908), the men’s choir song "Sverges
Flagga" [The Swedish Flag] (1916), "Elegi" [Elegy] (1932), and the polka
"Roslagsvår" [Spring in Roslagen] (1956, also used in the ballet "Den förlorade
sonen" [The Lost Son], 1957) plus several folk-song arrangements for choir.
