Notes and Editorial Reviews

Heir to the great tradition of the Viennese Philharmonic, where he was concertmeister in his youth, Walter Weller knows his Brahms. The Variations on a theme by Haydn have seldom sounded so natural and fluid. They open this programme, consisting of the two first orchestral scores written by the Hamburg master. After a stunning Burlesque by R. Strauss (FUG 546), Walter Weller meets again with Plamena Mangova in a powerful 1st Concerto, characterised by remarkable attention to detail.
