Quote from: Lisztianwagner on January 25, 2023, 01:38:45 PMBuenas noches, Rafael! Sure, I enjoyed the Concerto for Orchestra very much, a most intriguing piece; it is very mutable, as a kaleidoscope of forms in continuous transformation, with a great variety of timbric colours and dynamics as well as a tense, haunting atmosphere, aspects that remind me of Schönberg; in some passages, it reminds me of Bartók a little too, for example, after the beginning when there's a pizzicato on a floating pace of woodwinds, very beautiful and compelling. The first impression on Gerhard's music was very positive, I'll listen to the Concerto for piano and strings too.

Quote from: Symphonic Addict on January 28, 2023, 12:29:44 PMGlad you enjoyed it very much! Yes, it was inspired by his daughter's death, and one can notice the composer's sorrow throughout this eloquent masterpiece, and that is still the unrivalled recording. A very moving piece.
Quote from: ritter on January 28, 2023, 12:51:03 PMThanks for this, Ilaria. Your descriptions of the music you enjoy are always very insightful, beautifully written, and highly appreciated! I can only suggest you also listen to Gerhard's Don Quixote too. A great work.
Quote from: Lisztianwagner on January 28, 2023, 01:34:41 PMThe recording is certainly very compelling and superbly played, I completely agree. Yes, indeed, there's a sense of struggling and sufferance perceivable through all the symphony, sometimes merged with quieter moments of consolation trying to contrast the somber atmosphere, very beautiful. Another interest aspect is both the beginning and the ending with a solo trumpet, creating a sort of circular musical narration.
