Romantic Overtures – Volume 1 includes Kurt Herbert Adler’s extremely rare 1978 LP entitled ‘Overture’ and is a virtual feast of curiosities: Nicolai’s Tempelritter, Goldmark’s Merlin, Goetz’s Francesca von Rimini… The album concludes with Zubin Mehta’s Vienna Philharmonic recording of Brahms’s Tragic Overture. Recorded in 1976 at the sessions for the composer’s First Symphony it was deemed too long to fit on the LP and here receives its first international CD release.
