Notes & Reviews:

Inspired by the vast potential of the tonal foundation of music, at a time when many of his contemporaries were embracing the twelve tone ideology, the eminent German composer Reinhard Schwarz-Schilling produced a rich, varied and highly personal body of work. The 1956 'Sinfonia diatonica' for small orchestra, which here receives its world premiere recording, is characterized by filigree craftsmanship and a lithe classicism that are very refreshing in the context of the German post-war symphony. The 1963 'Symphony in C', scored for a much larger orchestra, including triple woodwind and brass, is notable for its inventive structure, increased harmonic and tonal freedom, and a restless yet organic contrast of dynamism and lyricism.

The Introduction and Fugue, arranged for string orchestra from an earlier string quartet, is an extremely beautiful piece that deserves to enter the repertoire of chamber orchestras worldwide. These are very enjoyable, distinctive works, and José Serebrier, as so often, proves the most dependable possible guide to this offbeat repertoire. Both the playing and the sonics are very fine. Definitely worth hearing.
