‘A richly endowed composer, selfless teacher, and a rare human being’
proclaims Robert Fuchs’ 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.
Sales Points • Robert Fuchs was one of the most important of all
compositional teachers, but his own works have long been undervalued.
Some of the chamber works have begun to receive praise in new
recordings, and the Serenades should cement Fuchs’ position still
further. He shows the influence of Brahms but also seems to foretell
something of Mahler (whom he taught) as well. Serenade No 3 has been
recorded, along with No 2 and the Andante Grazioso on Ebs, back in
2000. This has received minimal publicity. CPO recorded No 5 back in
2004 but coupled it with Fuchs’ Piano Concerto. Our disc focuses on the
Serenades in a unique coupling.
Currently Principal Conductor of the Gwangju Symphony Orchestra in
South Korea, Christian Ludwig served as artistic director of the Cologne
Chamber Orchestra from 2008 to 2011, conducting the orchestra at major
venues in Paris, Munich, Rome and Cologne.
