Siegmund von Hausegger


WDR Rundfunkchor Köln
WDR Sinfonieorchester Köln/Ari Rasilainen
CPO 777237-2 56:37

Scored for a very large orchestra including organ, and a choir, this is an immediately attractive work. There are reminders of Gustav Mahler, Richard Strauss, and Franz Schmidt. The choir appears only in the last movement. Rasilainen has made something of a name for himself in less familiar music such as the symphonies of Kurt Atterberg and Sinding, and is the man for showing this late Romantic work at its best.
