This fourth instalment of the recent symphonic output of Fridrich Bruk (born in Ukraine in 1937 but a Finnish resident since 1974) brings two earlier works – from when Bruk was merely in his late seventies. His Symphonies Nos. 15 and 16 – both predicated on Bruk’s concern for the environment – inhabit the sound-world that has become familiar from his more recent symphonies: almost a stream of consciousness expressed through wildly inventive orchestral writing in a kaleidoscope of colour and counterpoint, sitting somewhere between Villa-Lobos and Pettersson in its profligate abundance.

  1. :

    ‘I found Bruk to be a versatile, gifted and colourful orchestrator. The Symphonies are blessed with a superb recording. The Lithuanian National Symphony Orchestra perform with real commitment and fire. Imants Resnis is inspirational in every respect. The accompanying annotations are detailed and informative.’
