‘A richly endowed composer, selfless teacher, and a rare human being’ proclaims Robert Fuchs’s memorial stone, and this esteem is reflected in his astonishing roster of pupils—Mahler, Sibelius, Wolf and Korngold among them. His own compositions, though, have been overlooked, unaccountably so on the evidence of these lovely Serenades. The Third is quite Brahmsian with a wonderfully bracing Hungarian finale. No 4 is a highly expressive and richly scored work, whilst No 5 casts its net yet wider—with anticipations of Mahler, and joyous references to the Vienna of the Strauss family. Serenades Nos 1 and 2 are available on Naxos 8.572222.

Review By Der Stern,May 2012

„Alles ist so fein, so geschickt, so bezaubernd erfunden, dass man immer Gefallen daran findet“, urteilte Johannes Brahms über das Kompositionstalent von Robert Fuchs (1847–1927). Der war—ganz nebenbei—auch Lehrer von Gustav Mahler und Jean Sibelius. Genug Argumente, Fuchs wiederzuentdecker: etwa mit seinen eleganten Serenaden Nr. 3, 4 und 5, gespielt vom Kölner Kammerorchester unter Christian Ludwig. © 2012 Der Stern
