Produktbeskrivelse

Do you know Richard Wetz? He spent most of his life away from the major
music capitals. Born in Gleiwitz (Gliwice), he briefly studied in Leipzig
and then went for good to Erfurt. His musical model was and always remained
– quite audibly so – Anton Bruckner. So then he was an anachronistic
epigone? No, a great musician with a lot of inspiration and talent who came
forward committed to a set principle and remained true to it. And he had a
command of his métier. Richard Wetz is worth getting to know. Along with
his three highly atmospheric symphonies, it is his Violin Concerto that in
its free developmental form is one of the most interesting solo concertos
of the early twentieth century. An »erratic block« full of virtuosic
elegance and contrapuntal finesse!


Reviews:

ClassicsToday.com: »Wonderfully beautiful music. His themes sing and offer
clearly contrasting moods and pictures. Finely performed, finely recorded.«

FonoForum: »Wetz’s music pushes toward the festive, the imposing, and the
impressive.«

klassik-heute.de: »The Violin Concerto captivates the listener from its
very first note – it is the summarizing epilogue of an oeuvre that
unfortunately in large part goes unnoticed.«
