ERNST VON DOHNÁNYI (1877-1960): Symphony No. 1 in D Minor, Op. 9, Symphonic Minutes, Op. 36.
Catalogue Number: 10V039
Description: A young man's work of 1900, this expansive, five-movement symphony shows Dohnányi flexing his composing muscles and reveling in the sounds which made up the "new music" of his time - Bruckner, Richard Strauss, Tchaikovsky and Brahms. First recording of it since the Chandos from over 20 years ago. The Symphonic Minutes (1933) is a five-movement suite lasting 15 minutes - a kind of mini concerto-for-orchestra with a colorful percussion section and beautiful moments for winds. Deutsche Staatsphilharmonie Rheinland-Pfalz; Roberto Paternostro.
