MAX BRUCH (1838-1929) : VIOLIN CONCERTO No 1

Ακόμα μια περίπτωση κλασικού “one hit winder” είναι αυτή του Γερμανού συνθέτη – βιολονίστα Max Bruch, από τους τελευταίους συνεπείς εκφραστές του ρομαντικού πνεύματος, ακόμα και σε εποχές όπου οι τάσεις απομακρύνονταν από αυτό.
Ελάχιστα από τα περισσότερα από
200 έργα του, όπερες, χορωδιακά, ορχηστρικά, κονσέρτα, μουσική για σόλο όργανα, χορωδιακά μουσική δωματίου… εκτελούνται σήμερα, με προεξάρχον φυσικά το περίφημο Κονσέρτο Για Βιολί Νο 1. Το ακούμε από την Sarah Chang – την Φιλαρμονική της Δρέσδης διευθύνει ο Kurt Masur.

Another case of classic “one hit winder” is the one of German composer – violinist
Max Bruch, one of the last consistent exponents of the romantic spirit, even in an era when trends were moving away from that.
Few of his more than
200 works, operas, choral music, concertos, music for solo instruments, chamber music… are performed today, with most prominently, of course, his famous Violin Concerto No. 1. We hear it from Sarah Chang – the Dresden Philharmonic is conducted by Kurt Masur.

    “Scottish Fantasy” is the other piece of his that I hear classical music radio stations play as often as the “Violin Concerto.”

    Wow, fantastic!
    Hard to believe “one hit wonder”. I never thought of Classical music as having “hits”.
    Interesting.

      I actually use the term as a joke. But then, on second thought, it certainly can be used literally. 😜
