Notes and Editorial Reviews

The Braunfels—a concerto in all but name—and Pfitzner make an apt pairing, two works dating from the twilight of German Romanticism. Both are heroically dispatched by Markus Becker, with Constantin Trinks and his Berlin Radio Symphony forces providing idiomatic support.

-----

REVIEW:

Marcus Becker proves an eloquent, visceral master of the notes, making for a thrilling premier recording of the Braunfels. And in Constantin Trinks he has a dedicated partner, who takes an admirably collaborative view of events.
