In Europe in the 1920s, music experienced the revolution of the avant-garde. Composers turned away from Romanticism, but these three great composers struggled to prove that Romantic music was still relevant and thriving as a style of truly great works of art. Violinist Daniel Hope will perform Suter's beautiful Violin Concerto, and Marx's Autumn Symphony will celebrate its SECOND performance since 1927. THREE LONG-OVERDUE US PREMIERES... Program Walter Braunfels - Don Juan, Op. 34 (1923) ( U. S. Premiere ) Hermann Suter - Violin Concerto, Op. 23 (1924) ( U. S. Premiere ) Joseph Marx - Eine Herbstsymphonie [Autumn Symphony] (1921) ( U.S. Premiere )
