A much-loved Brahmsian-circle composer ... don't look for him for 20th century experimentation - just solid craftmanship.   I was quite chuffed to find this one still in the shrink-wrap around 1973 or so ... and the Vanguard surface was surprisingly quiet.  I find it superior to Galway's take on this concerto.  A Romantic, civilized piece from the German composer, completely unaware (in 1908) that Europe was about to be torn apart.

(Bruckner's) is the career of a poor village boy ... The one and only really surprising thing about him was that after completing his career as an organist he suddenly began to compose music with a range of vision which in such a man would appear quite incongruous.

I am really enjoying his string quartets on CPO, as well as the Piano Concerto No.1 (CPO), can't wait to hear more! His music and time period is very interesting to me and I love to explore composers from this era.

If you thought the Piano Concerto No. 1 was good, you'll probably love the Piano Concertos 3 and 4 much more, let alone his other concertos (for cello, violin, harp and flute, respectively).
Music is life, and like it, inextinguishable.

I love the vast surface of silence; and it is my chief delight to break it.

Wow, the No.2 and No.3 are fantastic! Just my cup of tea. I now have the Piano Trios, Harp and Flute Concertos, and Violin Concerto next to listen to.

Has anyone heard the serenade for string orchestra? I have an opportunity to see it live at a concert in Dallas in February. (It is paired with the Elgar Introduction and Allegro and Vaughan Williams "Dives and Lazarus").

Very good, enjoy the works. I have yet to give the piano trios a listen.

Yes, a nice piece. You can find it on YT.  I have the CPO and Brilliant Classics recordings.
