Notes & Reviews:
Although Max Bruch maintained a lively interest in vocal music and in the folk song in particular, his most significant works are found in the field of instrumental music (symphonies, concertos). The symphonic compositions brought together here, however, clearly attest to his "love for the lied." They reflect at least one of the factors regarded by him as the sources and suppliers of compositional inspiration: "First, a pretty picture; second, a pretty landscape; and third, a pretty woman." Whether in the Serenade after Swedish Folk Melodies, the highly imaginative and colorful Orchestral Suites on Swedish Dances, or the Suite after Russian Folk Songs, Bruch always depicts enchanting and romantic musical landscapes.
