Description: Nordic music for string orchestra: except that Busch was a Dane who moved to Kansas City in 1887 and eventually, in 1911, became musical director of the Kansas City Symphony. The simple, three-note motif of his Elegy (1899) will haunt you immediately and make you wonder why it isn't a famous "chestnut". Most of you will be familiar with the felicities of Wirén's and Larsson's beautiful serenades but the folk-inspired Nielsen and Bruch and not among their most-recorded pieces. Southwest German Chamber Orchestra; Pforzheim; Sebastian Tewinkel.
