Hofmann: Chamber Music
MDG 948 1808-6
Hofmann: Serenade in D major, Op 65 (26:56)
One of the most successful German composers of the 19th century, whose Frithjof for a time was the most-performed symphony in Germany, is almost forgotten today, a good hundred years later. Thanks to the young Berolina Ensemble, we have an impressive demonstration of the outstanding quality of Heinrich Hofmann’s chamber music on this new SACD.
