Anyone for Tyberg ?

An interesting new release from Naxos - Symphony No3 and a Piano Trio by Marcel Tyberg. Yet another hugely talented composer who perished at Auschwitz, whose manuscripts have belatedly surfaced in Buffalo, USA.

The symphony is an attractive work, with echoes of Mahler and Brahms, and it's given its fiest recording by JoAnn Falletta and the Buffalo Philharmonic.

It is coupled with a Piano Trio that I haven't got around to hearing yet, but the blurb assures us that the work is "imbued with the spirit of Beethoven and Mendelssohn, his Piano Trio brims with a richly Romantic esprit. "

Buy it for yourself, or as a present - it's one CD you can be certain they don't already have!
