Notes & Reviews:

Born in Glasgow, Eugen dAlbert (1864-1932) attracted much attention as a child for his exceptional pianistic talent. As a composer, too, d'Albert made a name for himself early on through the great success of his opera Tiefland (1903/05). This double CD presents the greater part of d'Albert's orchestral production with the two Piano Concertos, the Cello Concerto and his sole Symphony. The influence of his models Brahms and Liszt can be readily heard, but d'Albert's own style - a nearly ideal combination of virtuosity, romantic melodiousness and sharp flavor - is always recognizable.
