Kammersymphonie Berlin

conducted by Jürgen Bruns

 “An ambitious project and the resulting concert programme are reflected on this CD which also contains a carefully put together and informative booklet with numerous details about the female composers portrayed. The Kammersymphonie Berlin conducted by Jürgen Bruns plays with great engagement and verve - the bravos from the audience at the end, which can be heard on the recording, are justly deserved. This CD points us down a long-forgotten path of music history and is, above all, commendable for the recording of the 5th Symphony.”
