Product Description

Product Description

The distinguished Lucerne-born composer Fritz Brun (1878-1959) was arguably the most important Swiss symphonist of the 20th-century, completing no fewer than ten symphonies in the course of his long life. This outstandingly-recorded new CD offers the world premiere recording of Brun's very First Symphony (completed in 1902), a work placed very much in the tradition of Brahms, whom Brun greatly admired. Here is a new voice in European symphonic music, standing to one side of the work of Richard Strauss and Gustav Mahler, but at all times finely distinguished for its depth of musical expression. The much later Overture to a Jubilee Celebration (1950) was written for the inauguration of the new concert hall of Radio Berne, and shows the composer in his most joyful and attractive vein.

HASH(0x901f63e4) out of 5 stars A Middling Brahms Impersonation 31 Dec. 2013
By J. R. Trtek - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Fritz Brun was a Swiss composer who lived from 1878 to 1959. This first of ten symphonies was written in either 1901 or 1902, and it starts out as not half-bad faux Brahms. That spirit continues into the second half, but by this time, for me, the work has lost a bit of focus and begins to meander a bit. The third movement has moments that sound almost like operetta music moved to the symphonic level, though that's not meant as a slur. All in all, it's a nice ride in the spirit of the 19th Century. The Overture, composed about a half century after the symphony, sounds rather like its disc companion, though there do seem to be subtle differences here and there in orchestration. Still, it would appear that Brun pretty much stuck to his guns throughout his career. This album is essentially a look in the rear view mirror, and sometimes that's not a bad thing. In this case, it's a pretty good experience.
