The distinguished Lucerne-born composer Fritz Brun (1878-1959) was arguably the most important Swiss symphonist of the 20th-century, completing no fewer than ten symphonies in the course of his long life. This outstandingly-recorded new CD offers the world premiere recording of Brun's very First Symphony (completed in 1902), a work placed very much in the tradition of Brahms, whom Brun greatly admired. Here is a new voice in European symphonic music, standing to one side of the work of Richard Strauss and Gustav Mahler, but at all times finely distinguished for its depth of musical expression. The much later Overture to a Jubilee Celebration (1950) was written for the inauguration of the new concert hall of Radio Berne, and shows the composer in his most joyful and attractive vein.
