Notes & Reviews:

The city of Prague was a cultural hotspot in the 1920s and 30s. Three population groups, enriched by emigrants from Russia, the Ukraine, Germany and Austria, competed with one another but also inspired each other. This was the city of the composers on this recording by Werner Herbers and the Ebony Band, long known as champions of unknown or forgotten music from the first half of the 20th century. In the repertoire on this album we hear the old and the new, tradition and renewal, but above all, imagination and talent. When the border between East and West opened up in 1991, this music had hardly been heard in the West for some fifty years, having been suppressed first by the Nazis and then by suffocating communist rule.

MusicWeb International, 16th July 2013
Around Prague provides a rare snapshot of Prague in the 1920s and 1930s when it was a cultural hotspot which, if perhaps not quite rivalling the legendary richness of Paris, certainly offered a different flavour; mixing the cultures of central, eastern and northern Europe and generating its own subtle and not-so subtle brands of anarchy and the avant-garde.
