CPO 777693; CPO - CLASSIC PROD.OSNABRUCK - Germania; Classica Orchestrale


Not so long ago the only Klughardt on CD was the occasional chamber piece, but these recordings indicate that he may be one of the forgotten Romantics with real staying power and a personal voice, and I hope I have given enough indication of what the music sounds like to persuade you to give it a try --Martin Anderson, IRR

After enjoying the undemanding yet substantial pleasures of these three works I hope we will not have to wait too long for the next substantial Klughardt piece. His is by no means an original voice but he makes pleasing music and we need more of it. --Music Web International, Rob Barnett

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Klughardt's fifth symphony of 1897, as its C minor key signature might suggest, is rather different proposition to the genial, frequently bucolic third symphony that CPO revived on disc a year or so ago*. Its genesis lies in a string sextet the composer had written some years earlier but it's to Klughardt's credit that for the most part one would not imagine that this sometimes turbulent work was originally conceived for forces other than the full orchestra: I say "for the most part" because I did wonder whether the strongly-defined writing for the string sections, which often dominate the orchestral texture in its opening 'Allegro non troppo', betray its origins to some degree (though perhaps I wouldn't have thought so had I not been forearmed with the knowledge of its prior chamber incarnation). It's a finely-argued, quite dramatic sonata form movement, with a strong sense of forward momentum and clearly defined themes, and offers a quite different perspective on the composer to the other symphonic music of his we have in the record catalogue. I can't in all honesty say that the melodic writing in the 'Adagio' that follows is quite so memorable but from his rather reticent material Klughardt surprisingly fashions a movement that is one of the highlights of this score, sonorously scored and ripely Romantic.Read more ›
