CDS 1071-2 Philipp Ludwig Scharwenka (1847-1917): Frühlingswogen, Op. 87; Arcadian Suite, in B major, Op. 76; Liebesnacht, Op. 40. Gävle Symphony Orchestra conducted by Christopher Fifield



Three orchestral works with literary allusions by the brother of the well-known Xaver Scharwenka. These are pieces that show a more contemplative side than most of his brother's works, from the earily beautiful Frühlingswogen (after Turgenyev) to the delicate Liebesnacht, a theme from Tristan und Isolde.

"The whole disc, music, performances, richly resonant recording, presentation, is warmly recommended, one I have now listened to several times with increasing pleasure. Fifield (who has given us superb biographies of Max Bruch and Hans Richter) again proves a notable champion of unjustly neglected corners of the repertoire." - Jeremy Nicholas in Gramophone
