Produktbeskrivelse

The works for violoncello by Karl Weigl, a Viennese composer practically
forgotten today, qualify as a twofold revelation. First, they offer us an
opportunity once again to hear one of the musical voices that was the talk
of the town in fin-de-siècle Vienna; second, the CD contains music for
violoncello that in its »singability« is clearly modeled on Brahms but does
not imitate him. And what is even more remarkable about this production is
that its principal work – the Concerto – had never been heard at all until
the present recording. In this monumental and expressive concerto Weigl
sheds constantly new and impressive light on his melodic material. In
contrast to the rather operatic »Love-Song,« the »Wild Dance« is a
theatrical piece making ample use of flageolets and sul ponticello. The
Moderato in A major very simply offers time for a breather before the
energetic beginning is repeated and the movement concludes with a fiery and
forceful Presto con fuoco. Both works were dedicated to Arturo Toscanini.
