Unheard CCS 40517


This CD is unheard, for, as far as we know, none of this music has ever been issued before on a CD or gramophone recording. But this recording is also unheard-of, since every piece conveys the force of artistic necessity, of an uncompromising, selfless idealism, on which the Nazis laid a curse, but which went to make the music of the Interwar period so rich and engrossing. In short, the present CD provides a supplement to the incomplete history of the music of this period, and brings unjustly forgotten composers to life once again.

Works by Erich Itor Kahn, Hans Walter Süsskind, Louis Gruenberg and Otto Jokl.
