Conductor Ensembles Composer

Notes & Reviews:

For years cpo has lent its support to the rediscovery of one of Richard Strauss's most enigmatic contemporaries, Emil Nikolaus von Reznicek (1860-1945), whose fascinating music practically defies stylistic classification. Tonality was sacred to Reznicek, but within its limits he allowed himself many liberties. The Symphony in D major dons a Mendelssohnian mask, while the Symphony in F minor suggests pathos and high drama, though the title of the central slow movement, 'Funeral March on the Death of a Comedian', shows a composer not given to issuing straightforward statements.

American Record Guide, January/February 2015
CPO continues its comprehensive survey of Emil Nikolaus von Reznicek's work with two more of his symphonies. Their musical language is well-developed Austrian postromanticism. If your tastes are anything like mine, that means pre-sold.
