HERSCH: Symphonies Nos. 1 and 2 / Fracta / Arrache

Championed by distinguished conductors such as Marin Alsop and Mariss Jansons, since his mid-20s, Michael Hersch’s music has been performed by leading orchestras and concert artists. Winner of the prestigious Berlin Prize and the Rome Prize for composition, he has been described as a “new hope of American musical culture” by the Berliner Morgenpost, and a composer of “phenomenal musical ability” by the Financial Times. Hersch’s music, which ranges across vast and often anguished soundscapes, has a searing yet breath-taking effect. If Symphony No. 1 shows a young composer influenced by Mahler and Berg, Symphony No. 2 represents a more innovative and complex style. Fracta and Arraché are two harrowing and intense shorter pieces illustrative of Hersch’s most recent work. All works here receive their world première recording.
