Series "Modern Classics"
This new CD (world premiere recordings) with music by composer Ferdinand Bruckmann (*1930) represents a large and exciting gamut of his output.
Bruckmann, student of Frank Martin at the Musikhochschule Köln (Cologne Music Academy, Germany), later himself professor of composition and piano in Osaka, Japan, started early in his life to write down his musical ideas on music paper and express them in compositions. His music stands out by harmonic-melodic diversity, comical notions and funny surprises. In his compositions, you may find his treatment of a Ground (variations on a so-called basso continuo and thus an early form of the Chaconne) as well as reminiscences of Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto or of the subject of the 2nd movement of Haydn’s E flat major Trumpet Concerto.
Renowned interpreters like Kayako Bruckmann (the composer’s daughter, violinist in the Lübeck Philharmonic Orchestra), Rene Berman (solo cellist of the Arnhem Philharmonic Orchestra and professor at the Music Academy there), Heinz Walter Florin (pianist, composer and conductor of several well-known orchestras) and Michael van Krücker (renowned chamber musician and pianist) present with their interpretations a caracteristic and very convincing musical design!
