1879 in Music

Music reviews I’ve written for music published in 1879.

 

1. Charles Gounod: “Funeral March of a Marionette” [orchestrated version] (9/10)

A classic, iconic piece.

 

2. Antonin Dvorak: Violin Concerto in A minor (9/10)

Dvorak’s violin concerto has to be one of the most iconic in the repertoire. The second movement in particular I have heard way too many times.  It’s fine high romantic melodic stuff.
