Jesus Christus Church, Berlin
Endrik Wottrich / Rundfunk Sinfonieorchester / Berthold Goldschmidt
This was the last work Goldschmidt wrote before leaving Germany and settling in England in 1935. The score was 'lost' until 1992 and the world premiere took place in 1994 in Berlin with Goldschmidt conducting. The two Psalms form a single, continuous ternary-form movement, beginning with a robust Allegro marziale followed by a slower Larghetto section in halting march rhythm, finally coming full circle with a return to the tempo of the opening.
