Berwald: Symphonies, Vol. 1
Prokofiev: Symphony No. 1, 'Classical' / Symphony No. 5
Ondine: ODE1193-2
Kraus, J.M.: Viola Concerto, VB 153b and 153c / Concerto for Viola and Cello (D.A. Carpenter, Pesola, Tapiola Sinfonietta)


"Carpenter is a sensitive and knowledgeable guide through these works, which he plays as if they've always been with him. Viola players will surely rejoice that their concerto repertoire now has three challenging and beautiful additions, and those who wish to hear what was going on in the European string concerto beyond Haydn and Mozart could hardly do better than start here." - Gramophone
Chandos: CHAN9921
Berwald: Symphonies, Vol. 1


Thomas Dausgard lead the Danish National Radio Symphony Orchestra in these underappreciated recordings of Franz Berwald's Third and Fourth Symphonies. These are late romantic symphonies from a rarely recorded composer, and the demonstration-quality sound gives them the forum they deserve.
Naxos: 8.554058
Prokofiev: Symphony No. 1, 'Classical' / Symphony No. 5


Prokofiev's Symphony No. 1 was written while on holiday as an exercise in composing without the piano. The style of Joseph Haydn is a continuous presence, but Prokofiev's own voice dominates, and the 'Classical' Symphony has been a favorite since its debut in Petrograd 1918, conducted by the composer.
