Walter Braunfels is a composer whose music died twice: Once when the Nazis declared his music “degenerate art”. Then again when post-war Germany had little use for the various schools of tonal music; when the arbiters of taste considered any form of romantic music – almost the whole pre-war aesthetic – to be tainted. This 6threlease of Capriccio’s Braunfels Edition shows again his large range of colorful music and focus this time on his works for piano and orchestra from 3 different periods of his life: his first complete orchestral work, the Witches Sabbath, op. 8 (1906), the Concert piece for piano and orchestra op. 64 (1946) and one of his last compositions the Hebridian Dances op. 70(1950/51).

After the ban the Nazi rabble-rousers had imposed on him, it took a long time for Schreker’s oeuvre to be re-discovered, excavated from the archives, subjected to a re-appraisal and acknowledged as an indispensable element in one of the most fascinating periods of musical history. Although being taken for granted may bear the risk of renewed negligence, Franz Schreker’s status should no longer be challenged today. This makes it possible, apart from dealing with all of his main works also to consider what he himself perhaps did not deem his most ground-breaking works, ones permitting interesting insight into a musician’s workshop and displaying cross-references to his other works like you can hear on this recording.

Nobody knew anything aboutStrigoii. The script, lost together with other items in the turmoil of the First World War, was purchased back by the Director of the Enescu Museum. To make it easier to understand how Strigoiiwas created, it was necessary to undertake the decipherment and reconstruction of the manuscript. When Enescu approached Strigoiiin 1916, it was the result of an older admiration for the poet Mihai Eminescu that was to last until the end of the composer’s life. Whilst Eminescu evinces some similarities to German Romanticism in his poem (Novalis or Tieck), in StrigoiiEnescu also shows stylistic affinities to some contemporaries such as Alexander von Zemlinsky or the young Alban Berg.

Herbert Kegel is revered in Japan since his lifetime as one of the most important conductors of the 20thcentury. By contrast, maestro Kegel has always been regarded with a certain scepticism in his home country. For this reason, Kegel’s name today also stands as a warning as to what damage the so-called ‘music business’ and state-regulated cultural policies may do. His interpretations are characterized by immensely painstaking precision, transparency and listenability. The list of exploits can be continued, including, undoubtedly, the first Beethoven cycle in digital technology. It can also be heard in this box. Kegel’s slow tempi are initially surprising, but they have an effect: the poetry and clarity of Beethoven’s scores have rarely shown to more advantage.
