  • Description


    Concertos for wind instruments with orchestra are a rarity in the late Romantic period.

    All the greater is the merit that Friederike Roth, Robert Langbein and the Philharmonie Baden-Baden under Pavel Baleff have earned with the discovery of three works by Egon Gabler. The Horn Concerto, Clarinet Concerto and Concert Piece are more than stopgaps, however, for this premiere recording proves: Gabler knew his craft.

    An admirer of Wagner and Liszt, the composer's intimate knowledge of the instruments naturally suited him: Gabler served as a clarinettist first in the military, later in the royal chapel in Hanover.

    Gabler also learned from the great models in instrumentation. For the comparatively small orchestra, he finds refined sound mixtures.
