Description

Better known as one of the foremost conductors of the 20th century, Walter also found a place in contemporary composition in Vienna in the early part of the 1900s. Of particular importance is the Quintet, which was premiered by the Rosé Quartet, with the composer at the piano, and described as a resounding success. Universal Edition was an early publisher of Walter works, and they are pleased to publish this first edition of the Quintet, in cooperation with the Bruno Walter estate at the University of Music and Performing Arts of Vienna. For advanced performers.

Reviews

Natürlich ist der Einfluss Gustav Mahlers nicht zu überhören, besonders dann, wenn die Emotionen aufwallen. Doch Walters Thematik ist viel einheitlicher, der flächige Verlauf des Öfteren an Bruckner gemahnend, dazu ein Schuss Strauss'sche Süße. Und auch wenn ihm die Raffinesse der "Großen" fehlt, so ist die vorliegende Musik doch handwerklich meisterlich komponiert, mit höchst originellen Instrumentations-Einfällen und (wie bereits erwähnt) berückend schönen Passagen. Ensemble 02/2013
