Description: For collectors, it's unfortunate that this 1932 symphony, a three-movement work of 18 minutes which is distinguished by a dark, nervous mood and a driving intensity, already appeared on cpo two years ago but the rest of this program is new to CD. Although written in 1939, the concerto was reinstrumented in 1953, allowing for the hints of Shostakovich in the rondo finale of what is a more conservative, late romantic style piece than the symphony. Belying its title, the 1953 Symphonic Scherzo is a 17-minute piece which opens with a long slow section like the beginning of a symphonic first movement and moves through six sections with impressionistic, expressionistic and, again, Shostakovichian flavors. Michael Müller (cello), Netherlands Radio Symphony Orchestra, Netherlands Radio Chamber Philharmonic (concerto); Henrik Schaefer.
