Notes & Reviews:

In Berlin of the 1930s an attempt was undertaken to come to terms with the saxophone as a classical instrument. Broken off because of repression and war, it found a continuation only in the 1980s. This CD is the second of a series that presents compositions for the chamber music combination of alto saxophone and piano. The series begins with 1930 and continues to the compositional events of the beginning of the 21st century. Volume One (EDA21) and Volume 2 cover the 1930s. As the first composer on this disc, Edmund von Borck, wrote in 1932, "Only now does the saxophone begin its real triumphant advance, in fact also in modern, serious opera and concert music. One only slowly dares to go near this strange instrument with its highly individual timbre...it is not difficult to recognize the importance that the use of one or more saxophones can attain in the future in serious art music."
