Notes & Reviews:

The so-called 'lost generation' of German composers includes many whose lives were shaped by events after 1933. One such was Reinhard Schwarz-Schilling, a composer of strong spiritual depth whose 1953 Violin Concerto was rooted in his wartime experiences. Ingeniously constructed, it subtly evokes the influence of Bach, without at all embracing neo-classicism. Its moving slow movement is followed by a finale that marries virtuosity with dance-like magnetism. The Partita is much admired for its color and vitality, whilst the Polonaise is a lighter work, brimming with high spirits. GRAMMY-winner conductor and composer José Serebrier is one of today's most recorded classical artists. He has received 39 GRAMMY® nominations in recent years. His First Symphony (8.559648) was premièred by Leopold Stokowski (who premièred several of his works) when Serebrier was 17, as a last-minute replacement for the then still unplayable Ives Fourth Symphony.

American Record Guide, September / October 2012
Like many another conservative German composer from the first half of the 20th Century, Reinhard Schwarz-Schilling (1904-85) was once reasonably well known in his native land, but pretty much forgotten after World War II when adherence to tonality and tradition were part of a past that most forward-looking German artists wished to repudiate. But as always, fashion and fad have neither judgement nor taste; good and bad art is made in many styles, no matter how trendy or passT at the time. Schwarz-Schilling, as it happens, was a highly gifted and skillful composer who, rather like Pfitzner or Gerhard Frommel (reviewed last issue), wrote superbly crafted and imaginative music, deeply individual in its own way, but not the least au courant.
