The Life and Work of Richard Stöhr


Chamber Symphony Op. 32

The Chamber Symphony was composed in 1912.  It is scored for String Quartet, Clarinet, Oboe, Horn, Bassoon and Harp.  Stöhr also sometimes referred to it as a Nonet.  The first movement of this work was performed at the 80th birthday celebration in the Vienna Academy of Music in 1954 organized by Hans Sittner, president of the school and later author of the only book about Stöhr.  That performance can be heard on the Listen page, and the full program of that concert appears under Documents.
