Hartmann Concerto funebre for violin + string orchestra

March 23, 2012 at 2:09 PM

Karl Amadeus Hartmann (1905-1963) wrote Concerto funebre for violin + string orchestra. I have heard it once in Concertgebouw Amsterdam and will soon hear it again life by a amateurorchestra. It is a quite popular piece and relative often performed.

Thanks for posting the Hartmann. Hartmann lived in Germany during the Third Reich and distinguished himself by refusing to allow performance of his music in the Reich, despite the financial harm to him.
