 Brahms II? March 3, 2013 By Henry S. (Springfield, VA) See All My Reviews "The symphonic output of the 19th century Austrian Heinrich von Herzogenberg was late in emerging on the European musical scene, almost in the pattern of Brahms, to whom Herzogenberg's 1st Symphony is said to show some similarities. Symphony #1 opens with a sprawling, 18 minute Adagio-Allegro, based on a draft symphonic score Herzogenberg had put on ice for many years, apparently dissatisfied with it at the time. The full Symphony #1 of the mid-1880's uses this large opening movement as a base for three more compact and glowing movements, building to an exhilerating conclusion. Symphony #2 strikes me as more freely developed, with vigor and radiant energy throughout. The NDR Radiophilharmonie of Hannover, Germany, gives a warm and vibrant reading of these late Romantic scores, and CPO's audio engineering is first rate, as usual. Herzogenberg's orchestral works are little known in North America, and I think this is unfortunate, because his music is really high quality. I recommend this excellent recording to any classical music fan of the late Romantic repertoire. It won't disappoint!" Report Abuse
