Description: Rarely has a composer so objectionable personally and politically been able to write such heart-easing, lyrical music which often has a touch of melancholy in its quiet, more serious moments (which are the majority). Only the youthful A minor concerto of 1887 - the longest here at a mere 23 minutes - has the fire and vigour of the young but even here, the slow sections seem to already have a touch of the world-weariness Pfitnzer evinces in his maturity and late years. Rarely recorded material and probably the only recording which couples all three of these works. Alban Gerhardt (cello), Gergana Gergova (violin), Radio Symphony Orchestra Berlin; Sebastian Weigle.
