Label: Hännsler Classic
Reference: CD 93.206
Description: Hännsler Classic and its young cellist announce the beginning of the series "Brahms and his Contemporaries" as if Divox hadn't done the very same thing 20 years ago and as if cpo and many other smaller German labels weren't recording Herzogenberg, Fuchs, Roentgen, etc. right now. Still, for collectors who didn't get the Fuchs when it appeared 13 years ago on Marco Polo, it is a very Brahmsian, autumnal piece full of beautiful melodies from 1908. The Zemlinsky was first issued by Nimbus four months ago in our May catalogue (05I012) where you can read more about it. Johannes Moser (cello), Paul Rivinius (piano).
