While conservative in design, it doesnt sound old-fashioned. -- Audiophile Audition, John Sunier

From the time I first heard Ludwig Thuille's masterly Sextet for Piano and Winds in B-flat Major, Op. 6, thirty years ago, I have wanted to hear more music by this sadly neglected composer, a more traditionalist friend of Richard Strauss. Apart from a meager handful of recordings (quickly out of print) of the Sextet, though, for years nothing else was available. I read that Thuille, apart from large vocal works, and a good deal of chamber music, had written one symphony, the Symphony in F, and at least one piano concerto, and have been watching eagerly over the years, hoping that someone would finally commit them to disc. And at last! And well worth the wait too. Among his contemporaries, Thuille was esteemed as a teacher but his compositions were thought old-fashioned. (Indeed, so were Bach's-- the Baroque was already dissolving when Bach's great later works were written. For us, a hundred and more years later, it is immaterial if a composer's work was au courant; instead, it is the intrinsic value of the music that should matter.)

This Piano Concerto and Symphony are both wonderful, especially the Symphony. Interestingly, the Concerto seems to have the same idiosyncrasy as the Sextet: its first movement begins, if not in a lackluster way, at least, in a gentle and nonrhetorical way. And, as in the sextet, the later movements are all gems. Thuille was a lover of the music of Brahms and Schumann: yet he was a more engaging orchestrator, in my opinion, than either of those earlier masters, especially Schumann. Something of the sumptuous and yet luminous instrumentation of the Sextet is audible in both concerto and symphony. The slow movement of the concerto is lovely, and the finale is wonderful.
