Notes & Reviews:

Max Bruch was an enthusiastic exponent of music for solo string instruments, yet little of this music is known to a broad audience.

Max Bruch was almost an exact contemporary of Camille Saint-Saëns, with whom he shared a taste for fine musical structure and an unconditional fidelity to the spirit of Beethoven. Each exercised his talent in his respective country. But whereas Saint-Saëns was able to make a name for himself as a virtuoso musician and composer in a France that was bubbling with artistic activity, Max Bruch found himself faced with the 'heavyweights' of German music: Liszt, Brahms, Wagner and, from 1890, the overwhelming figure of Richard Strauss. Yet he is a worthy representative of the 'provincial' movement in German musical creation, an activity that was encouraged by Germany's many art centers as a means of establishing their social and cultural reputation, and thereby extending their political influence.
