Notes & Reviews:

Julius Röntgen is regarded by many as the most important and versatile composer to come out of Holland in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. His oeuvre is incredibly extensive, and encompasses symphonies, concertos, chamber music and solo instrumental music. Röntgen wrote fifteen symphonies in the last two years of his life, which until recently seemed doomed to obscurity. CPO now rescues these great symphonic works, and shall produce the complete symphonic works by Röntgen in the coming years. Appropriately, the Staatsphilharmonie Rheinland-Pfalz ("alert and beautifully appointed playing." Classics Today on CPO 999908-2) are conducted by another great Dutch composer and conductor, David Porcelijn.

Classics Today
... the andante second movement and finale show Röntgen's great originality in that rarest of qualities: the ability to write memorable tunes. This, in the final analysis, is the secret of Röntgen's success, and it whets the appetite for further releases in what hopefully will be a long-running series.
