Max Bruch

To most people the name Bruch means just one work, his Violin Concerto No 1. There's a little more to him than that. He wrote symphonies (his first at the age of 14), operas and oratorios. By his mid-twenties he was famous, considered to be the equal of Brahms and a worthy successor to Mendelssohn.
