Description: Nothing is known about the musical education of this 1/16th Jewish composer murdered by the Nazis in Auschwitz on New Year's Eve of 1943 but we do know that he was a close friend for 20 years of the conductor Rafael Kubelik (who gave the premiere of his Symphony No. 2 with the Czech Philharmonic) and that he lived a poverty-stricken existence in a town in what is now Croatia (then Italy), supporting his widowed mother solely on music lessons. This 37-minute symphony was finished not long before he was deported by the Nazis. As if nothing had happened during his lifetime in musical history, Tyberg's main reference points in this symphony are Bruckner and Mahler. Beautiful themes, rhapsodically presented and gorgeously orchestrated - a miracle rediscovery brought to performance from handwritten manuscripts through the hard work of The Foundation for Jewish Philanthropies and of Falletta and her orchestra's executives. The 1936 trio is, if anything, even more backward-looking, imbued with the spirit and sensibilities of Beethoven and Mendelssohn.
