Notes & Reviews:

The year was 1898 and in Weingartner's chamber works personal experience was lent direct expression. From his memoirs we learn that his Opus 24 was born of the news of two deaths. Bismarck had died in July, and "the almost simultaneous news of the death of a dear child in the house where I had completed my first symphony spread a melancholy veil over my soul - but one that proved to be a productive dew." The result was "the outstanding work of a composer who draws on historical signs and figures to produce a solid terrain on which he then presents what in its overall form is a quite original communication and in detail a very private one" (Eckhardt van den Hoogen).
