Edition RadioMusiken Vol. 2: Suites & Overtures for the Radio - works by Schreker, Toch, Spoliansky, Braunfels, Spoliansky / Dresden State Opera Orch.

Notes & Reviews:

BBC Music Magazine, April 2015
Effectively what we get here is a marvellous cross-section of the varied stylistic preoccupations that were in vogue during the last years of the Weimar Republic...Ernst Theis and the Orchestra of the Staatsoperette Dresden appear to be enjoying themselves enormously through the Kunneke and deliver vibrant accounts of the rest of these works. Strongly recommended.

From 2005-11 the Dresden State Operetta Orchestra under Ernst Theis recorded a body of works known as the Rundfunkmusiken (Radio Suites). German radio networks commissioned these compositions from the best-known contemporary composers with the goal of developing works adapted to the technical resources of the new mass medium. The Rundfunkmusiken are like an interface between popular music and the many different trends in classical music during the Weimar Republic. Vol. 2 contains radio suites and overtures by amongst others, Franz Schreker, Ernst Toch and Walter Braunfels

Classical Music
Spoliansky's brief Charleston Caprice is a delight, and if you're unfamiliar with Max Butting's Sinfonietta mit Banjo, now's your chance!
