Ernst Mielck: Symphony in F minor; Concert Piece

by , ,

Finnish composer Ernst Mielck was regarded in his time as having been a possible contender to the mantle of Jean Sibelius. However, such promise was stilled forever when Mielck died in 1899 at the tender age of 21. Comparisons drawn between Mielck's work to that of his contemporaries is common. Beyond Sibelius, there is mention in the notes of Mielck's course of study with Max Bruch and a suggestion that his F minor symphony may be inspired by Johannes Brahms. In its time, the work was compared to Richard Strauss' Don Quixote, and thus called "too modern." But this symphony is not just a reinvention of music written by other composers; it is a major symphonic statement on its own. The most obvious parallel in familiar literature that is tempting to draw is to Tchaikovsky.
