Symphony #2 in B Minor (1903)
Residentie Orchestra, The Hague/Matthias Bamert
Chandos CHAN9884 65:08
The Dutch composer Dopper wrote seven symphonies, some of which lack recordings. This CD is part of a short series on Chandos devoted to Dutch composers, and includes symphonies by Hol and Vermoolen. The second symphony has strong similarities to Brahms and also to Stanford; its second movement has more than a touch of Irishness about it.
