Disc No: CDS-1027-2 This Swedish label brings us its second Huber CD - a large-scale symphony-cum-violin concerto (unpublished, written in 1906) which was based on a poem of the same title by Justinus Kerner. This is not a concerto; the solo role is not virtuosic, rather the solo violinist represents the protagonist of the poem and the symphony itself, in three movements, follows the narration of Kerner's work in clearly laid-out (and identified) sections. The idiom is lushly romantic with Swiss folk elements flavoring an orchestral language which has some of the richness of Richard Strauss (whom Huber greatly admired) and the feeling of the great Central European forests, so much a part of 19th century Romantic music, is always present. The 1885 Serenade is in the the classic tradition of easily approachable, open-air music which began with Mozart and came down to Huber via Brahms, wrapping the listener in a warm embrace.
