Marcel Tyberg was a victim of the World War II Holocaust, but his scores were preserved and have recently been revived through the support of JoAnn Falletta and the BPO. The Second Symphony is filled with Romantic enchantment and pastoral narrative, reflecting Tyberg's reverence for 19th-century styles. The Second Piano Sonata also develops earlier traditions, revealing the influence of Beethoven. Tyberg's Third Symphony, previously released on Naxos (8572236), was praised by The Washington Post which the observation that the Buffalo Philharmonic 'has never sounded better...Tyberg's music is wellcrafted and earnest, tuneful and filled with seriousness of purpose and harmonic mastery.'
