Notes & Reviews:

CPO's third publication as part of their cycle of symphonic poems by Dvorak's son-in-law Josef Suk is devoted initially to the overture "Marchen eines Winterabends" from Shakespeare's piece "A Winter Tale". During the first few bars, however, it becomes clear that Suk has assiduously avoided the original's aims and objectives and has conceived music that holds fast to the classical principles of sonata theory. His later sound poem "Ripening" was written between 1912 and 1917 and describes a mature artist looking back on his past life. As in a burning-glass, here the outstanding artistic traits of the composer are concentrated: a dense score for large orchestra with intricate rhythms, constantly changing motif references and allusions to earlier works was the result.
