Max Bruch (1838-1920) - Romanze Op. 85 - Timothy Ridout, viola / Megumi ...

En kall söndagseftermiddag kräver sin typ av musik. Jag väljer idag ett stycke av Max Bruch. Just detta skrev han 1911.

"Romanze was written late in Bruch’s life during a period when he showed favor toward the viola, also composing Eight Pieces for Clarinet, Viola, and Piano, op. 83 (1910) and the Double Concerto for Clarinet, Viola, and Orchestra, op. 88 (1911). The work was dedicated to the great French violist Maurice Vieux, who at the time was principal violist of the Paris Opéra and would later go on to a renowned teaching career at the Conservatoire de Paris. The premiere, however, was given by the German violinist Willy Hess, a friend of Bruch’s."
