At the outset, composer Christian Lindberg decided to associate clarinettist Emil Jonason in all phases of his writing process - from the first embryos that would become the main themes of the concerto, to the most subtle details of the two Cadences solistes, which he conceived at the very end. The title of the work, The Fantastic Dreams of Mr Grönstedt, would have been inspired, according to Lindberg, by the name of a Swedish cognac from the Grönstedt brand founded in 1846 on the one hand by the character of the clarinettist Emil Jonason on the other hand. In these mysterious dreams, one sees an innocent character who is preparing for a spring ball, or who meets a certain Lisa dressed in his magic mantle, among other fantasies.
