Notes & Reviews:

One of the most characteristic features of Hartmann's work is the way in which he forges sometimes extremely contrasting stylistic elements and techniques from various periods of music history into a seamless unit. Moreover, one melody is found in all his symphonies, in which it is concealed to varying degrees. This melody is based on the Jewish song "Elijahu hanavi" about the prophet Elijah, whom the Jews anxiously await because he will bring redemption. Thanks to the presence - whatever its form - of this theme in the vast majority of his works, Hartmann's resounding legacy can be heard as an abstract and highly impressive work of art.
