Notes & Reviews:

Gramophone Magazine
The Concerto funebre (1939, rev 1959) has fared better on disc than any other Hartmann work... Its powerful inner message of grief and protest at then encroachment of tyranny across Europe... gives it an immediacy that is compelling... Schneiderhan was one of the first violinists to take it up after the war and this 1973 archival account is utterly gripping. Maria Bergmann's connection to the Piano Concerto (1953) is closer still as she premiered the work... Bergmann's pianism shows total commitment, matched by Kubelík's inch-perfect accompaniment. Kubelík is at his best, however, in the Symphonic Hymns (1941-42). Scored for large orchestra, this is the nearest Hartmann came to a sinfonietta with a roof-raising climax that sounds tremendous in this, its belated 1975 premiere.
