Catalogue Number: 08T041
Description: Two early, two middle and one late VWs works and offered because these enterprising Germans are only the second group to record the four-movement Bucolic Suite (1900, rev. 1901) which has a Dvorakian spirit in many parts (Dutton did it first five years ago - 09O002). Folk-song is evident too although not exploited in the manner to come only a few years later with In the Fen Country. Martin Rummel (cello), Deutsche Staatsphilharmonie Rheinland-Pfalz; Karl-Heinz Steffens.
