Symphonic Concerto Wilhelm Furtwaengler
Posted by Gulliver on May 23, 2014, 9:30 pm
I have a CD of the Furtwaengler Symphonic Concerto in b minor on Tahra, with Erik Thin Bergh, think it might be the only one available apart from the one with Edwin Fischer who only played the slow movement.
Its all slow, like as if Bruckner had written a symphony with a piano part! I think Furt was wise to pack in composing, Hindemith patted him on both shoulders after his 2nd symphony and said the things you write!
Thank you for taking part in the MusicWeb International Forum.
