Victor Larsson: En minnesvård, varaktigare än bronsen – Om Hilding Rosenberg, musikhistorieskrivning och sex stråkkvartetter. Uppsala universitet: Institutionen för musikvetenskap, C-uppsats 2006.

In the late 1950s, Swedish composer Hilding Rosenberg composed a number of new string quartets – nos. 7-12. These compositions were commissioned by Sveriges Radio and originally performed by Kyndelkvartetten. The string quartets received excellent critique and both reviews and analyses were published in Swedish periodical Nutida Musik. The aim of the essay is to, taking reviews from daily press and Nutida Musik as starting point, investigate in what context Rosenbergs music was presented. The fact that Rosenberg was working as a private teacher, and that some of his students were a part of the new generation of modernists in Sweden – Måndagsgruppen – is being discussed and a connection between Måndagsgruppen's overtaking of Swedish musical institutions and Rosenbergs increase in popularity is investigated.
