CDS 1027-2 Hans Huber (1852-1921): Erste Serenade (Sommernächte) (1885); Symphony No. 5 (Romantische), "Der Geiger von Gmünd". (1906); Hansheinz Schneeberger (violin; symphony); Stuttgarter Philharmoniker conducted by Jörg-Peter Weigle.
Normally the serenade would be a filler? Not at all! This is a true poetic piece - very Mendelssohnian. Symphony, really a violin concerto, illustrates vividly a poem with a happy ending. Again, what a truly great discovery Huber is!
"Just take this for what it is: as an unfamiliar symphony for orchestral with violin solo. The mature solo violin part is Brahmsian (somehow emphasised by woodland birdcalls) and recorded with definition but without undue prominence. Several times Schneeberger's travel through this score made me think of the middle movement of the Tchaikovsky concerto although the work is not a concerto." - MusicWeb
