He conducted the Swedish Royal Orchestra from 1911 to 1924, he was director of the Royal Swedish Opera in 1923, and he served as principal conductor of the Stockholm Concert Society until 1938.[1] Wiklund's compositions are Romantic and nationalistic in style. His later works show the influence of Impressionism. He was not a prolific composer, but his works have been important to Swedish music. His output includes two piano concertos, a symphonic poem Sommarnatt och soluppgång ("Summer night and sunrise"), a symphony, and a violin sonata.
