About

Julius Burger was a student of Schreker in Berlin in the 1920s, fleeing to New York to escape the Nazis.
His Cello Concerto is a close stylistic cousin of Blochís Schelomo; it and the other works here, all recorded for the first time, show a sensitive ear for orchestral colour. The two songs confirm Burgerís exquisite sense of melody.
Recorded in the presence of the composer, these are all first recordings.
