Long celebrated as one of the finest violinists in history and the leader of an exemplary string quartet, Adolf Busch (1891–1952) is slowly being discovered also as a major composer, with a style close to that of his good friend Max Reger. As with Reger, Busch combines effortless counterpoint, warm harmonies, a strong sense of orchestral color, and an ear for a good tune – as witness the five works to be heard here, four of them in their first recordings and the other in its first modern recording.
