Bochumer Symphoniker, Frank Beermann.
A composer that was unknown to me, but attracted my attention considering the time he lived in.
The samples made me curious, and since it was mid-price I ordered it some time ago, and finally landed in my player. And I am pleasantly surprised of how good a composer he really is. For these are thoroughly professional works, expertly orchestrated, and melodious as tight as a shoestring. Fine ideas are tumbling over each other without end, and many a musical invention has the stamp of originality. He is an amalgam of many influences, worked out into perfection. I am very impressed, and delighted at that. A genius in his own right, unjustly forgotten, and happily revived by CPO. May they record also the first two symphonies, just a small hint that is to the owners of CPO. The recording is pretty near State of the Art, and the performance likewise.
