On a beautiful day, amid elegantly dressed bystanders, Johannes Brahms is waiting at Vienna’s Northwest-Railway Station for the Steam Train to leave on a journey to Berlin, Leipzig or Hanover, where he will give concerts with some of his works. One would love to be among the crowd, just to feel the flair of these great times…
Since its world premiere in Vienna on December 30, 1877, with Hans Richter conducting, the Second Symphony has become one of Brahms´ most popular works, a bright and buoyant piece, full of sunshine and good cheer.
Listen to Volker Hartung and his Cologne New Philharmonic’s brilliant performance of this masterpiece recorded at Laeiszhalle in Hamburg, Germany.
The String Sextet No. 1 in B flat major was composed in 1860 by Johannes Brahms and premiered in Hanover by an ensemble led by his friend Joseph Joachim. The sextet is scored for two violins, two violas, and two cellos. The Chamber ensemble of the Cologne New Philharmonic, including Volker Hartung at the Viola performed this work at the great acoustics of Cologne’s 11th-century Romanesque church St. Mary's in the Capitol.
Here is the beautiful recording!


It is available in 24-bit/48 kHz HD-Audio Sound.

COLOGNE NEW PHILHARMONIC
VOLKER HARTUNG, conductor


The Cologne New Philharmonic Orchestra and Maestro Hartung are celebrating the genius of Gioachino Rossini, the most celebrated Opera Composer of all times.
His music sounds as Champagne sparkles!
Besides overtures to his famous operas Barber of Seville, The Italian in Alger, La Cenerentola and William Tell, this album contains instrumental works from his earliest days: Rossini wrote his sonatas for strings when he was just 12 years old. On this album Serbian flute virtuoso Dejan Gavric performs one of these joyful pieces together with the fabulous strings of the Cologne New Philharmonic.
With 18 years Rossini composed „Variations for Clarinet and small orchestra“. This work sounds like a coloratura aria for the clarinet and gives the soloist great opportunity to prove his virtuosic talents, as Greek clarinetist Miltos Mumulides shows brilliantly!
