Notes and Editorial Reviews

The Symphony No. 1 in D minor op. 9 belongs to Dohnányi’s early years of success. Among all the influences of the late Romantic tradition, that by Brahms’ music can be discerned here once more. From it, Dohnányi forms a kind of early Neo-Romanticism that can be viewed as a continuation of the 19th century while avoiding the Expressionist, sprawling violence of the beginnings of Modernism in the 20th century. Reminiscent of Mahler and Strauss is the sovereign treatment of the large orchestra, in which many details stand out, making a major contribution towards the quality of the work. The Symphonic Minutes op. 36 was written in 1933 in the context to compose a Hungarian dance game. With this release Capriccio starts a new Read more Edition with recordings of these still less known but powerful Music from the hungarian Composer Ernst von Dohnanyi. Read less
