Notes & Reviews:

Draeseke was one of the most prominent exponents of the music of his times in German-speaking countries. He developed a late romantic compositional style modeled on classical ideals and also gained renown as a music teacher and composer. Dubbed "the mighty warrior" by Liszt, Draeseke was one of the most gifted composers of the New German School.
