cpo's Hausegger series continues with more powerful symphonic music, and the greatest success of the composers lifetime - his Barbarossa of 1899. His second magnificent tone poem forms a three-movement symphony; this lavish late romantic work clearly exhibits influences from Wagner and above all from Bruckner. Those who followed Hauseggers career regarded his Hymns to the Night, based on Gottfried Keller and composed immediately after Barbarossa as his best contribution to the genre of the orchestral song.
