Notes & Reviews:

The Prussian-born conductor-composer Leopold Damrosch (1832 - 85) built his reputation through the orchestra he founded in Breslau. He emigrated to America in 1871 where he founded a number of important musical institutions in New York and became chief conductor at the Metropolitan Opera and the New York Philharmonic. The spirited student performances in this recording reveal that the same spirit of adventure informed his own music, heard here in its first recordings. At the heart of his only symphony, which sits between Brahms and Wagner, is a dark and powerful funeral march. The disc opens with a jubilant overture which takes an excited lead from Wagner's Meistersingers, and closes with a bonne bouche in the form of Damrosch's orchestration of a Schubert favorite.
