The Polish composer Moritz Moszkowski (1854-1925) is best remembered for a handful of virtuoso piano pieces, but he also produced a substantial body of orchestral music, most of it unperformed for a century or more. The first volume in this first-ever survey of his orchestral output presented the monumental 'Symphonic Poem in Four Movements' Johanna d'Arc - a vast symphonic fresco depicting the life, death and transfiguration of the heroine of Schiller's 1801 play Die Jungfrau von Orleans - and drew a warm welcome from the musical press. These two big-hearted Suites continue that process of discovery, opening a treasure chest of gorgeous melody and sumptuous orchestral writing that make these forgotten gems irresistibly attractive.
