Work introduction

This work is a small symphony in three movements, the second subdivided into three parts, a presto interrupting the slow Largo. The motoric pulsations of the initial and final allegro movements are evocative of Baroque concerti, while the deeply-felt lyricism of the Largo evinces the young composer’s precociousness, carried over into the Presto and enriching the Sinfonietta with bright, buoyant, cheerful music.

Press reviews

“The greatest merit of this work is the wonderful clarity and the clear arrangement of its structure. Bright and colourful in style, highly refreshing and yet totally unproblematic, it captivates listeners from the first to the last bar.”

Essener Volkszeitung, 1936
