Catalogue Number: 09R034
Label: Brilliant Classics
Description: Very little information is given in the notes but Büchner spent most of his long career as a founding member of the faculty of the Moscow Conservatory and wrote eight flute concertos which, if they’re like this one with a fine Romantic sweep and lovely motives in both fast and slow movements, are certainly worthy of rediscovery. No date is given for this one; it sounds not Brahmsian so must be early although the usual Schumann influence of such pre-Brahms works is not really present either. The notes tell us that the outer movements of the full-blooded proto-Romantic Dupuy (again no date) are identical with a flute concerto by Peter von Winter (there are two D minor concertos by Winter on Naxos - 12K040).
