About

CPO’s Hausegger series continues with more powerful symphonic music, and the greatest success of the composer’s lifetime - his Barbarossa of 1899. His second magnificent tone poem forms a three-movement symphony; first performed in Munich and then a second time in Berlin, this lavish late romantic work clearly exhibits influences from Wagner and above all from Bruckner. It is the typical work of a young enthusiast, outstandingly orchestrated, and was presented many times during the years prior to World War I. Those who followed Hausegger’s career regarded his Hymns to the Night, based on Gottfried Keller and composed immediately after Barbarossa, as his best contribution to the genre of the orchestral song.
