Description: The eleventh cpo disc devoted to Herzogenberg and the seventh of his chamber music brings works almost entirely from his post-1875 assumption of Brahmsian style. Only the op. 15 Phantasie predates this dividing line, a dashing and passionate two-movement work of 19 minutes which owes much to the youthful Schumann and was among the last two or three pieces which marked the end of Herzogenberg's Schumann-Liszt-Wagner path. 2 CDs. Christian Altenburger (violin, viola), Oliver Triendl (piano).
