Hugo Alfvén surely ranks with the leading composers of Swedish late romanticism and made his name for himself above all with his compositions inspired by Swedish folklore. The cpo label has just released the first CD of its new edition dedicated to the composer's symphonic music – recorded by Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin and conductor Łukasz Borowicz and co-produced by Deutschlandfunk Kultur.
On tour with Robin Ticciati
A short tour between Feb 14 and 16 takes the DSO and Robin Ticciati to Alte Oper Frankfurt, Hamburg's Elbphilharmonie (pictured) and the Essen Philharmonie. On the programme: Lindberg's ›Chorale‹ and Bruckner's sixth symphony, as well as Jean Sibelius' violin concerto, played by Christian Tetzlaff. The Hamburg concert is sold out.
Jorge Bolet plays Liszt
Jorge Bolet (1914–1990) ist undoubtedly one of the 20th century's greatest Liszt players – as proven by concert recordings of the composer's piano concertos, newly published by the audite label on February 1st. They were made in 1971 and 1982 with the Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin (then Radio Symphony Orchestra Berlin, RSO) at the Berlin Philharmonic, conducted by Lawrence Foster and Edo de Waart.
