Format:Audio CD
This coupling of both Burgmüller's symphonies is a logical one, which I am surprised has not been done before. The recordings date from 2006-2007 and have been released this year to coincide with the 200th anniversary of the composer's birth in 1810. Both symphonies have been recorded before, the second symphony several times and the first symphony just once by the Sterling label where it is coupled with the sole symphony of a fellow Spohr pupil, Hugo Staehle.

The earlier of the two works is an accomplished piece, justly admired by Schumann, notable for the thematic concentration of its opening `allegro moderato' but also, particularly in that movement, betraying the influence of Spohr. Even so, in this first attempt at the genre, there are foreshadowings of Burgmüller's incipient individuality in the poetic `adagio' second movement and in parts of the scherzo; both scherzo and finale have a turbulent cast to them that is quite distinct from Spohr's more equably moderate musical personality.

The second symphony (which was unfinished at the composer's tragically early death; Schumann completed the sketched out scherzo and the finale was never set to paper) marks a significant developmental step from its predecessor. The broad-scaled opening movement, like much of the work, has a pastoral quality to it but a more Romantically inclined one than Beethoven's sixth symphony, for example, although some recitative-like passages for the strings are reminiscent of the beginning of the finale to that composer's ninth symphony. Burgmüller here is very much his own man, however, and one can see (or hear) why so many have lamented his passing before he had chance to make his mark on the history of music.

Gifted mid - C19th composer, admired by his contemporaries and making a merited come - back. An excellent purchase for devotees of the Romantic symphony.
