I just listened to part of the Arioso from the Violin Concerto (through a link at the Hans Gál Society) and really liked it. Bittersweet beauty. I read two of the man’s books a long time ago (about Brahms and Wagner), but this is the first time I have listened to Gál the composer.
Glad you liked it- that’s a very beautiful movement, and you describe it very well. I hope you’ll check out more of the recordings- it’s all worth hearing.
