Notes & Reviews:
The composer's image - an avowed anti-Semite - repeatedly sparked fierce discussions in the feature pages of national and international newspapers. A prosaic analysis of this work reveals that the word "German" does not appear once in the entire opus.
Pfitzner's tonal language was rooted in the 19th century, but also branches out onto "new pathways", to paraphrase Robert Schumann, whom Pfitzner greatly admired.
INGO METZMACHER had the support of a first-class ensemble of soloists for his Berlin performances. The purpose of this release is to document the opus itself in its entirety, regardless of the continuous debate that surrounds it.
