Notes & Reviews:

This release extends the extensive Jan van Gilse collection released by CPO. At the Netherlands Music Festival in 1912, van Gilse met with great recognition for his imposing work. DaniŽl de Lange wrote that the work had originated at a time "during which pieces like 'Wandrers Sturmlied' by Richard Strauss became more popular and Wagner's influence had reached its absolute zenith. In a worthy manner van Gilse's work follows the current musical trend. The orchestration is masterful.
