Notes and Editorial Reviews

How many times has this happened ñ right in the middle of a conversation or work the thought appears, Why canít I find any Swiss composers who remind me of Richard Strauss? This enterprising release should solve that problem! In its style of orchestration, melodies and sheer exuberance, the Symphony No. 9 by Fritz Bruns comes strikingly close to such Strauss works as Don Juan and the Symphonia Domestica. The attention being given to Brunís music has been growing in recent years, and we are particularly pleased to present these first recordings of two of his major orchestral works. He was particularly noted for his brilliantly-written orchestral music, and of his ten completed Symphonies, written between 1908 and 1953, the Ninth is regarded Read more as one of the best. Completed in 1950, it is an impressive composition of inherent strength and nobility. Coupled with it is one of Brunís symphonic poems, From the Book of Job, an equally masterful score of imagination and refinement. The performances by the Moscow Symphony Orchestra under Adriano, whose specialty is the revival of unusual music like this, are notable for their excellence and understanding, with state-of-the-art engineering.
