About

The last of our Huber series. Symphony no.4 is more serene and inward-looking than the other symphonies. Saint-SaŽns seems to be a main source of inspiration. Symphony no.8 is again vivid and personal - but mainly idyllic, as with most of the Huber symphonies. One of the great storytellers among composers!

"Indeed, right from the impressively cohesive first movement, the work is full of buoyant, life-affirming energy (Huber said he was constantly thinking 'spring thoughts' while composing it) that Huber expresses through gorgeous tunes, fetching rhythms, and colorful orchestration. Given these three qualities, it's not surprising that DvorŠk comes to mind more than once during the course of this highly enjoyable work." - ClassicsToday.com on Symphony no.4
