Notes and Editorial Reviews

HERMANN SUTER (1870 - 1926): Symphony in D minor, Op. 17 (1914) (First Stereo and First CD Recording); HANS JELMOLI (1877 - 1936): Three Pieces for Orchestra from the lyrical comedy "His Legacy" (1904/12) (World Première Recording). Moscow Symphony Orchestra; Adriano, conductor. ---------- Suter's Symphony in D minor for large symphony orchestra can be considered a milestone in Swiss symphonic music of the twentieth century, but at the same time an unjustly neglected one. The fact that it requires an excellent ensemble may be a reason for such a reserved attitude on the part of some conductors and instrumentalists. As a contrasting composer, but a contemporary of Hermann Suter, Hans Jelmoli's music is premièred on this disc in order not Read more only to fill one more of those numerous gaps in Swiss musical history, but also to allow the listener to recover from Suter's passionate outbursts by means of some sweet and less pretentious musical miniatures.
