CDS 1037-2 Hans Huber (1852-1921): Symphony No. 3, "Heroische" (1902); Symphony No. 6 (1911). Stuttgarter Philharmoniker conducted by Jörg-Peter Weigle.
Again Huber proves to be a very distinguished composer. Both symphonies could best be described as jovial, jolly and spicy! A remarkable third movement in third symphony with a waltz theme of remarkable charm. Could easily be used as a separate ballet piece. Side theme in Symphony no 6, first movement, of stunning beauty!
"So airy is some of the orchestration that we are almost into Berlioz at his most impressionistic as in Symphonie Fantastique. Set off against this a Brahmsian gravitas. The performance is excellent - infused with flammable temperament and an impressive unanimity of attack. A welcome change from Dvorák 5 and 6. Do try it!" - MusicWeb about the Huber 2nd symphony.
