Dvorák’s tonal language and his fiery musical temperament have also found their way into the early works of Alexander von Zemlinsky. With his second symphony delivered proof of his compositional talent, which was still very much linked to symphonic tradition – even if it demonstrates a high level of individualism.
Throughout his life, the Swedish born Gunnar de Frumerie felt himself to be closely bound to tradition. His trombone concerto is one of the favourite pieces for this instrument. Since winning the Christian Lindberg Competition in 2006, soloist Frederic Belli has become a major exponent of the trombone.
