"Three magazines appeared in Swedish [during the first two decades of the twentieth century]. First was Euterpe, edited by Karl Flodin. This was a general arts magazine dealing with music, theatre, and literature, published during the years 1901-05. In 1905, while Euterpe was still appearing, the editor Axel von Kothen began Finsk Musikrevy (Finnish Music Review), subtitled "published by young musicians", which ran for only three years. In 1910 a new magazine Tidning för Musik was begun by Gösta Waldström, Otto Andersson, and Olof Wallin. Tidning för Musik continued until 1916, and was the last Swedish-speaking general music magazine in Finland for many decades. The appearances of Finnish language musical magazines in the early twentieth century were as disconnected as those of their Swedish language counterparts."
