‘I am an EU singer’, Hermann Prey always said about himself. However, by that he did not mean so much his citizenship of a country of the European Union as the fact that he felt at home in the fields of ‘E’ and ‘U’, i.e. in ‘serious’ and entertainment music alike. For Prey, this distinction never existed, but only the issue of the quality of music, and he found this not only in the opera and Lied, but also in the operetta, the musical and the well-made hit. For forty-six years, from the time of his first commitment in Wisebaden in 1952 onwards, Prey always convinced his audience: in opera, art and folksong, operetta and musical alike. This collection of 5CDs shows us his fascinating wide range of repertoire and interpretation.

Alfred Schnittke as a composer of film music – that is a fact well known to anyone who has ever been concerned with Alfred Schnittke. However, only very few people are familiar with his actual work in the film music genre. This is all the more surprising since on the one hand, Alfred Schnittke wrote more than 60 film scores during the years between 1961 and 1984, and on the other hand, his poly-stylistic techniques found a nearly perfect equivalent in film. Since Alfred Schnittke suffered from the artistic regimentations like many contemporary composers in the USSR, and his works could often only be performed under difficult circumstances, his work for the film to a large extent contributed to his livelihood.

Prokofiev enjoyed relative freedom in the symphonic medium.  Symphonies allowed him to create dancing rhythms that need not be strictly danceable, as well as singing melodies beyond the limitations of human vocal chords. He worked on symphonies – a part from earlier, unrealized student works – from 1916 until 1952, the year before his death. A complete set of Prokofiev's symphonies provides a satisfyingly all-encompassing look at the composer's creativity throughout the years of his mastery.
