The registration for this "classical modern"piece was made without knowing the score by intention, to find an intuitive solution. Don't hope, to have ruined the composition...
This recording shows the "modernity" of Ladegast's sound concept in 1885 in contradiction to Walcker and Sauer (which I like very much, nevertheless).
Walcker and Sauer sound concepts lead to a big company success but also to a"dead end" IMHO, while the "conservative" Ladegast concept combining classical and romantic influences was the beginning of the company decline in 1880
