I am a great admirer of Herzogenberg's music, and this twofar is no exception. Wonderful idiomatic works, full of his usual creativity, and this enormous wealth of rich romantic melodies. The construction may seem simple, but the tone is of a youthful tempestuousness with a classicistic character. Close to what Brahms would have done actually, and no less in musical quality. Opus 15 bears some traces of Schumann, but is very skilfully composed by Herzogenberg. The same can apply to the Legenden, in which all the compositorial qualities of Herzogenberg come together in a wonderful evocation of colourful exuberance. Deep into the romantic ideal of Brahms, it is a very satisfying work. And that goes for all the music on this twofar.
The recording as well as the performance are without a doubt the ones you are looking for. Perfect.
