Radio Romantica

tue 19 jul 2022 20:00 

Musical Romanticism, explored by Pieter de Oude.

On today’s episode of Radio Romantica, we present the all but unknown 2nd Symphony by Felix Draeseke. The composer of this classical work did not have an easy life.

Hailing from Switzerland, Draeseke had an immense inferiority complex towards the German music culture, which he never got over. His music was and is never played, not least because Richard Strauss described him in some very unfavourable terms. Still, we are happy to give him a shot.
This broadcast ends with the well-known Latvian Skride sisters. They perform a number of Hungarian dances by Brahms.
