My introduction to the symphonies of Friedrich Gernsheim was some years ago now, when Arte Nova first issued their two-disc set of the complete cycle*. As I wrote in my review of that set, I wasn't immediately struck by them and the discs languished on my shelves for several years before a re-listen revealed to me what delights these works contain. I suspect had I heard the wonderfully judged performances on this new CPO release, however, my appreciation of Gernsheim's symphonic talents would not have been such a protracted affair.

That's not to say that the Arte Nova recordings under Siegfried Köhler's baton are anything to be sniffed at - they are good performances by any stretch and sometimes the two conductors seem pretty evenly matched: both provide convincing and well-judged performances of the first symphony's opening `Allegro moderato' and I even think that perhaps Köhler's slightly more measured handling of the movement's coda is more successful in building tension than Bäumer's more energetic take on it, viscerally exciting though it undoubtedly is. On the whole, however, I think Bäumer's conception of the two works recorded here is both grander and more subtle.

4.0 out of 5 stars Superior performances of neglected works 27 Oct 2013
By Raymond Rice - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Herman Baumer and the Mainze Philharmonic provide a far superior interpretation of Gernsheim's 1st and 3rd symphonies than that offered by S. Kohler and the Rheinland-Pfalz (unfortunately the only other option and the only recording of all four of Gernsheim's attempts in the genre). I was an unconditional fan of Gernsheim's quartets, trios, and piano quintets, and was thus highly disappointed with Kohler's renditions, which are (marginally) competent but perfunctory. The opening Allegro moderato of Gernsheim's First provides perfect differentiation between the two interpretations: Baumer's runs over half as long again as Kohler's, but not merely because he respects the expositional repeat, but also in his far greater sensitivity (even sympathy) toward Gernsheim's contrasting tempi and rhythmic structures-- qualities even more immediately apparent in his chamber works (particularly his outstanding String Quartet in A minor). Many critics have remarked on Gernsheim's Mendelssohnian "lightness" (in comparison to Brahms), but as Baumer's recording helps to underscore, it is really a matter of contrast between the sternness of northern Germany and the fantasy and whimsy of the South (which most clearly manifests itself in his remarkable scherzi). All in all, this is the best way to introduce yourself to Gernsheim's symphonies-- one can only hope that CPO will quickly follow up this highly successful release with Baumer's version of the 2nd and 4th symphonies.

4.0 out of 5 stars Two Excellent Cases for Gernsheim the Symphonist 7 Jan 2014
By J. R. Trtek - Published on Amazon.com
I had been acquainted with the recordings of the Gernsheim symphonies on Arte Nova by Staatsphilharmonie Rheinland-Pfalz under Siegfried Köhler, and while I found the music certainly engaging up to a point, I wasn't all that taken by it, except perhaps the Symphony No. 4. These performances of the Nos. 1 and 3, however, certainly make a stronger case for this composer, who I suppose could be classed as a kind of Brahms wannabe. In the hands of Herman Baumer and the Mainze Philharmonic, these two symphonies, at least, get a much better treatment than in the Arte Nova renditions. Frankly, I find Gernsheim a more compelling composer in his chamber works, such as the violin sonatas and piano quartets that can be found in recordings on the Brilliant label; still, the music here definitely represents first-class performances of second-class music. Well worth a listen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gernsheim wrote the best "Brahmsian" Symphonies, but before Brahms!!!!!! 6 Sep 2013
By Juan Cahis Llugany - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Dear friends, Gernsheim wrote the best "Brahmsian" Symphonies, but before Brahms!!!!!! I understand that his First precedes Brahms First. And they are outstanding.

The performance and the recording are very good, a great CD indeed.
